Australia Uncovered Pitch

Pitch Watch teams pitch compelling stories about contemporary Australia for the landmark SBS strand, Australia Uncovered.

Australia Uncovered, presented by SBS, returns for its second consecutive year to AIDC 2021 with a strand of prime-time single documentaries exploring diversity and equality in contemporary Australia.

Six shortlisted projects will pitch live during AIDC 2021 for the chance to share in up to $80,000 in development funds with commissioned projects broadcast on SBS in 2022.

Once again Australia Uncovered also welcomed proposals from project teams seeking production funding and post-production funding.

SBS has a grand history of supporting the broadcast of single documentaries with the financial support of Screen Australia, which continues to back the next round of Australia Uncovered titles.

Shortlisted projects are creative in their approach to style, form and construct – with each having something captivating to say about modern-day Australia.
