Creating Documentary & Factual Ideas That Travel

Panel How to develop compelling and sellable documentaries and factual series with the international market in mind.

A panel of documentary/factual producers and commissioners unpack the process of developing ideas that will work for both domestic and international markets. How important is it to find themes, stories and protagonists that can have global resonance? What other elements of a project (eg: a well-developed impact strategy) can help enhance reach and engagement with local and international audiences? And how can producers ‘future-proof’ their original IP and formats so that they will sell globally?

Moderator:  Jeanie Davison, Screenworks

Speakers: Karina Holden, Head of Factual, Northern Pictures (Zoom)
Stephen Oliver, Manager, Documentaries, ABC (In Person)
Cody Greenwood, Founder, Rush Films (In Person)
