Are you passionate about documentary? Do you want to build your skills in festival or event management? Interested in opportunities to meet other like-minded non-fiction fans?


We’d love you to volunteer with us during the 2022 Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC) Sunday 6 March – Wed 9 March, 2022.

Based at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) at Federation Square, Melbourne, AIDC 2022 will host a four-day documentary project marketplace, forum and screening and events program, attracting a diverse mix of broadcasters, storytellers, entrepreneurs and documentary fans from Australia, the Asia-Pacific and beyond.

We are now looking for a number of enthusiastic volunteers to help out in the lead up (Thursday 3 March) and during the event (Sunday 6 March – Wednesday 9 March 2022).


In exchange for generously volunteering with us, you will receive access to sessions available on the day of your shift. These sessions are valued at over $250 / day. Along with this, you will receive an AIDC t-shirt and meal vouchers.

We value the time, commitment and expertise our volunteers contribute to AIDC and many of our volunteers have since returned to work with AIDC, which we always encourage.


Ideally volunteers will be available for a minimum of four shifts between Sunday 6 and Wednesday 9 March. Shifts are between 4–6 hours and include a meal break after 4 hours.

Volunteers will need to attend a compulsory induction session prior to the conference. The session will cover all the in’s and out’s of the conference including a WHS (Workplace Health and Safety) induction with an AIDC and ACMI  representative. The date for this session will be announced soon.
