CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
AIDC 2019 INDIGENOUS CREATORS PROGRAM
Screen Australia’s Indigenous Department, in conjunction with the Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC), are partnering with state agencies Film Victoria, Create NSW, Screenwest, Screen Territory, Screen Queensland, South Australian Film Corporation and Screen Tasmania to bring emerging Indigenous practitioners to Melbourne for AIDC which will be take place from Sunday 3 to Wednesday 6 March 2019 at ACMI.
AIDC will be adding to its program a number of sessions designed specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners. These sessions make up the Indigenous Creators Program, which will be private and open only to Indigenous-identifying delegates, and will provide targeted information and skills around pitching, storytelling, funding, legal and distribution.
While the sessions can be attended by anyone identifying as Indigenous, they will be designed predominantly for:
● early-career practitioners working across documentary, factual television and interactive non-fiction;
The goals of the program include:
● Providing concrete skills on how and when to pitch projects to potential decision makers (with a focus on the AIDC marketplace);
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
The optional program will be made available to all Indigenous practitioners registered to attend AIDC with an All Access or Focus Pass, with more information regarding the program made available in February.
