Our Organisation

Established in 1987, AIDC is a not-for-profit organisation committed to supporting and elevating nonfiction storytelling through creative and business opportunities across film, television, streaming, and digital media.


The Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC) is the premier event for nonfiction screen content in the Southern Hemisphere.

AIDC is an innovative and industry-leading event, welcoming industry players from across the globe to drive collaboration, development, and production and to inspire innovation and ignite social change.

AIDC organises a marketplace for documentary and factual product, provides a space for networking to encourage collaboration between practitioners, showcases the work of Australian and international producers, and creates a forum to discuss content, craft, technology, and future directions.

The next AIDC will take place 3-6 March 2024 at ACMI, Naarm / Melbourne. 

Join us for Australia’s premier event for documentary and factual servicing the screen and digital media industries.

The Australian International Documentary Conference acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work.
