AIDC and Screen Australia Indigenous Department are partnering with state agencies Film Victoria, Create NSW, Screenwest, Screen Territory, Screen Queensland, South Australian Film Corporation and Screen Tasmania to bring emerging Indigenous practitioners to AIDC.
During the conference, AIDC will be running for the first time its Indigenous Creators Program, a strand of AIDC 2019 sessions designed specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners.
These sessions, which will be private and open only to Indigenous-identifying delegates, will provide targeted information and skills around pitching, storytelling, funding, legal considerations and distribution.
While the sessions can be attended by anyone identifying as Indigenous, they are aimed at filmmakers who are early-career practitioners across documentary, factual television or interactive non-fiction; and those who have their first or second project ready for the AIDC marketplace.
The optional program will be made available to all Indigenous practitioners registered to attend AIDC with an All Access Pass or Focus Pass. AIDC will contact registered Indigenous practitioners with more details relating to the program as well as an invitation to participate in February.
