What makes a good film producer? Guest compere Maggie Tabberer interviews Pat Lovell and Margaret Fink.

Lovell was the executive producer of Picnic at Hanging Rock (Peter Weir, Australia, 1975) and Fink produced My Brilliant Career (Gillian Armstrong, Australia, 1979).

Fink and Lovell speak with great candour about why they became producers, how they choose their material and the state of the Australian film industry. Fink says 'It's a greedy, immoral industry, there's no question about that'.

They finish up talking about why Australia has a relatively large number of female producers compared with America.
