Australian film and television veteran Hazel Phillips helps launch the 2012 Gold Coast Indie Film and TV Network on Wednesday.

OUR very own Betty White will open this year's Gold Coast Indie Film and TV Network on Wednesday.

Hazel Phillips has contributed extensively to film and has appeared on television since its creation.

Her many credits include the original Beauty and the Beast and The Bramston Show.

Her own talk show Girl Talk was the first midday show on television and ran daily for four years, which made her the most popular female in the country at the time.

During this time she won gold and bronze Logies and since then has appeared in theatre, cabaret, radio and journalism.

Miss Phillips has written, starred and appeared in three of her own musicals as well as 30 others.

During the year 2000 she wrote a one-woman show which ran for two hours, tracing the life and times of Marilyn Monroe, titled Marilyn and Me.

She has appeared in several plays for the Queensland Theatre Company including leads in The Circle, Pride and Prejudice, Shakespeare's Henry V and The Merry Wives of Windsor directed by Geoffrey Rush.

Awarded an Order of Australia Medal in 2005, she wrote her autobiography Black River Bright Star in 2008 yet still continues to entertain.

March 21 will be an excellent opportunity for fans to get up close and personal with Miss Phillips, hear her discuss her splendid career and ask her questions.

Liz Condor who reached The X Factor semi-finals and has recently released a film clip for her song Indestructible will also feature in the opening.

The Gold Coast Indie Network is brought to you by Caroline Russo Promotions, Media PR, GC Business and GC Filming.

The Arts Centre Gold Coast's The Basement event features lucky door prizes, runs from 6.30pm-9.30pm (Qld) and costs $15.
