Our Organisation

The Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC) is Australia’s premier event for documentary, factual and interactive non-fiction screen content.


Held annually in Melbourne and featuring a four-day international marketplace, forum and screening program, AIDC attracts a diverse mix of broadcasters, storytellers, entrepreneurs and documentary fans from Australia, the Asia-Pacific and beyond.

Established in 1987, AIDC is a not-for-profit organisation committed to the sustainability of documentary, factual and interactive storytelling. Our goal is to connect creators, purveyors and viewers of nonfiction screen content in ways that promote business, inspire creativity and ignite social change.

AIDC 2019 took place 3–6 March 2019 at ACMI, Melbourne.
