Aunty to launch new climate, environment doco initiative
29 July 2022 at 10:52 am

Emerging Australian documentary makers with a passion for the environment have the opportunity to work with some of the best in the business. 

ABC factual is partnering with not-for-profit Doc Society to launch the Environment and Climate Solutions Short Form Documentary Initiative.

Funding from Screenwest, Screen Tasmania, Screen Queensland, VicScreen and Screen Territory offers early career filmmakers the opportunity to create short documentaries for ABC TV and ABC iview under the mentorship of Doc Society and ABC.

Up to two applicants from each participating state or territory are to be selected to develop and produce their idea with successful applicants to receive up to $18,000 to complete their films.

Applications are open now and close at 11:59pm, 21 August, 2022.

The initiative will provide production funding and a mentorship program to create a 5-10-minute short documentary film focussing on solutions to the climate and environmental challenges.

“They will have their work seen by a wide audience on ABC TV and ABC iview …. [and] also build invaluable relationships with the ABC Factual commissioning team who will mentor them through all stages of the filmmaking process,” said Richard Huddleston, acting head of factual and culture, ABC. 

Doc Society’s Malinda Wink, global director of good pitch and its director of Australian programs, Hollie Fiferwill be joined by Teri Calder, ABC factual impact and partnerships executive producer and other key executives from the ABC factual commissioning team.
