|Last night at a special presentation at ACMI, Melbourne and live-streamed around the world, the Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC) announced the winners of 2nd Annual AIDC Awards.
The AIDC Awards ceremony marks the conclusion of the four-day in-person and online conference for the documentary and factual industry.
The 2022 hybrid event saw the participation of more than 90 local and international speakers, and more than 100 local and international decision makers in a program of 40-plus sessions and 500 curated meetings, with many more spontaneous meetings made throughout the event.
AIDC 2022’s hybrid format provided the best of both worlds for delegates, facilitating a much-anticipated opportunity to catch-up in-person, as well as giving them enhanced online access to international speakers and decision makers.
The winners of the second annual AIDC awards, selected by the AIDC awards jury, are:
BEST FEATURE DOCUMENTARY
WINNER | I’M WANITA | 2020
Matthew Walker, Carolina Sorensen, Clare Lewis, Tait Brady | People Productions
What the jury said: ‘A daring boldness punctuates this film stylistically, and its colour, music and larger-than-life personalities give it a dramatic flair that seems stranger than fiction. Yet I’m Wanita simultaneously succeeds in capturing life’s fragility and disappointments, providing a complex view of reality with a subject with so much heart that it is impossible not to reflect on who we are as individuals and what, we too, can do to make the world a better place’.
