Indigenous Creators Program: Meet the International Buyers

Indigenous Creators Program Some of AIDC’s most high-profile international buyers speak about commissioning processes and what they are looking for with meet-and-greet to follow.

There is a global hunger for Indigenous stories, yet what are the different avenues to get your content out there? Who is the audience? And what are international buyers actually looking for? What will resonate globally and which local stories translate?

In this session, five of AIDC’s international decision makers will open up about what they are looking for when it comes to content, and how Indigenous stories can break through. Companies participating include Al Jazeera, Discovery, ESPN, the New York Times the National Film Board of Canada, with form, content and audience all on the table for discussion. This session is preceded by a traditional Welcome to Country and followed by an informal meet and greet with the panellists.

The Indigenous Creators Program is a series of four sessions that are available to all Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander practitioners registered to attend AIDC with an All Access Pass or Focus Pass. These sessions are optional and will be closed to media and non-Indigenous identifying practitioners.
