The AIDC program: pleasure, curiosity and brute realities

The Australian International Documentary Conference is headlined by the idea 'Moment of Truth.' Here are some of our favourite truthful sessions.

Not only does the Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC) have a complete program online, the website itself is clean and easy to navigate. That is an achievement in itself, helped along by a manageable number of panels and pitching sessions. 

You can spend three pleasant days watching production teams talk about challenging projects, and be uplifted by tales of hope, tenacity and inspiration. The standout is probably the case study about Life in Colour with David Attenborough, seen mostly from the Australian perspective of this UK co-production which embraces pretty well every kind of delivery platform beyond Tik-Tok.
