Description

At this Saskatchewan Film Week event, SMPIA, in collaboration with SaskBooks, provides an opportunity to watch book publishers or their authors in Regina and Saskatoon pitch book-to-film concepts to film and television producers. A panel of producers will offer feedback on the book's potential as a media property. Then there will be socializing! Snacks and first beverage are on us.

If you would like to watch this happen (and who wouldn't?) please order a ticket as seating is limited.
