AIDC is pleased to once again partner with Doc Society to present the second Art & Impact Fellowship program. Both organisations are now calling for social impact documentary storytellers to join a year-long creative mentorship and impact strategy fellowship starting this September, 2022.
Supported by Screen Australia’s Enterprise Funding Program, Doc Society’s Art & Impact Fellowship in partnership with AIDC will assist Australian project teams to build effective strategies for using an independent documentary project as a tool for change, focusing on storytelling skills, developing impact campaigns and distribution strategies, creating audience engagement and finding new pathways to finance.
Led by Global Director of Good Pitch at Doc Society, Malinda Wink, and Doc Society’s Director of Australian Programs, Hollie Fifer, the program begins with a five-day Story & Impact Lab from 12-15 September 2022. Ongoing support includes workshops and mentoring and an All Access Pass to the next AIDC in March 2023.
Applications are now open, with a submission deadline of 10 July 2022. There are no fees to apply or participate.
The Fellowship is seeking teams creating ambitious documentary stories that tackle a national or global issue, with something important to show about the world or ourselves.
Projects within the broad canvas of documentary are welcome – films, podcasts, VR or mixed media. Projects can be at any stage, from early production to rough cut.
