AIDC’s MeetMarket opens for applications
[Press Release by The Lantern Group]
After three successful years, MeetMarket, the place to meet with international and Australian buyers, returns to the 2009 Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC) in Adelaide next February.
MeetMarket is an initiative of Screen Australia and AIDC, and provides a unique opportunity for Australian documentary filmmakers with fresh ideas and projects in development to meet with potential buyers. Submissions selected to participate in MeetMarket are made available to international and domestic broadcast and distribution executives through MeetMarket’s innovative online portal.
Applicants are required to submit a two-minute video pitch teaser of their documentary project. Independent selectors will choose up to 20 projects to take part in MeetMarket. The online pitch teasers will be made available to buyers attending AIDC who will then request meetings with the filmmakers. The meetings are scheduled to take place during the conference.
All successful applicants will have the opportunity to participate in a pitch preparation session the day before the conference commences.
Entries for selection close Thursday 20 November 2008.
Guidelines and application forms are available from http://www.aidc.com.au/market-place/meetmarket
