The Australian International Documentary Conference (Aidc) has announced 18 feature documentary and factual series projects that take part in its revamped FACTory pitching forum in March.
This year the FACTory will feature separate Forum pitches divided by genre categories, alongside a New Talent pitch, and a Rough Cut pitch.
The restructure has resulted in the largest ever number of FACTory projects accepted for pitching, with 18 projects spanning 12 different countries of production, including Canada, China, and India.
Producer and director teams in each Forum category and the New Talent pitch will present their projects in open forum sessions to curated groups of buyers, commissioners and distributors during Aidc 2020. Forum and New Talent pitches will be open to all Aidc pass-holders, while Rough Cut sessions will be accessible by decision makers only.
All projects in FACTory 2020 will also be eligible to win pitch prizes, including:
