Untold Australia Pitching Forum

Marketplace Watch teams pitch observational docs for acclaimed SBS series Untold Australia

SBS has invited pitches of one-hour observational documentaries for the fifth season of Untold Australia, a series that unearths some of the most fascinating and unreported stories from Australia’s diverse communities.

The brief is broad and documentary makers are encouraged to submit a range of ideas and tones that explore and celebrate Australia’s diverse and multicultural communities. What they will all have in common is that they will be contemporary character-led worlds with unfolding, untold stories that will surprise and occasionally shock.

SBS will commit development funding of up to $60,000 to the successful projects at the end of this pitching session.
