NOW SEEKING SOCIAL IMPACT PROJECTS IN DEVELOPMENT
Presented by AFTRS, Doc Society and AIDC, in partnership with Screen NSW, applications are now open for the 2022 New Perspectives Pitch Lab, an initiative empowering nonfiction storytellers to pursue and build support for the stories they seek to tell.
Submissions are sought from emerging nonfiction talent with a social impact project in development or production, with wide consideration given to projects across observational or character-driven stories, hybrid and essay films, podcasts, and series for television or online.
Successful applicants will take part in six online coaching and development sessions and an online pitch event with mentors including Malinda Wink, Global Director of Good Pitch, Doc Society.
All teams will be assigned an industry mentor for 12 months and have application fees waived for AIDC’s FACTory 2022 pitch. One team will also be selected for further pitching opportunities at AIDC 2022 and awarded two free All Access passes.
In 2020, six teams were selected for the inaugural New Perspectives, with three going on to receive $10,000 each in funding from the philanthropic MaiTri Foundation’s Story Program.
Applications close Friday 29 October 2021. Click the link below for further information and to apply.
