AIDC and Screen Australia Indigenous Department are partnering for a second year with state screen agencies across the country to bring emerging Indigenous practitioners to AIDC 2020.

AIDC 2020 will see the return of the Indigenous Creators Program, a strand of sessions designed specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners.

Curated by Kyas Sherriff (Senior Commissioning Editor, NITV), these sessions, which are private and open only to Indigenous delegates, will provide targeted information and skills across craft, business and networking


Indigenous Creators Program sessions are as follows:

16:30 – 17:30 Sunday 1 March:  Local & International Heavyweights

9:30 – 10:45 Monday 2 March:  Meet the International Buyers

16:00 – 17:15 Tuesday 3 March: Other Forms of Funding

9:30 – 10:45 Wednesday 4 March: On the Pulse – Data, Digital & the Short Doc.

More detailed information on these and other sessions can be found on the AIDC 2020 Sessions Page.


It’s easy to participate! The Indigenous Creators Program is open to all Indigenous practitioners registered to attend AIDC with a Gold Pass, All Access Pass or Focus Pass, so just come along to the sessions.
