About Us

The Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC) is Australia's premier event for documentary, factual and unscripted screen content.

Based at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne and featuring a four-day marketplace, forum and screening program, AIDC attracts a diverse mix of broadcasters, storytellers, entrepreneurs and documentary fans from Australia, the Asia-Pacific and beyond.

AIDC is a not for profit organisation committed to the sustainability of documentary, factual and unscripted storytelling. Our goal is to connect creators, purveyors and viewers of non-fiction screen content in ways that promote business, inspire creativity and ignite social change.

Reaching its milestone 30th anniversary in 2017, the upcoming AIDC will acknowledge Australian trailblazers and innovators, and celebrate the past, present and future of telling true stories on screen.
