Press release from AIDC

The First Factual Films Festival (F4) is a key event within the annual Australian International Documentary Conference and in 2012 is being co-presented with the Adelaide Festival of Arts during the opening weekend of the Festival.


The F4 program includes documentaries from International Master Filmmakers and the works of Australia’s best emerging documentary talents.

F4 films provide a unique window into worlds, cultures and places, celebrating the authors of the screen and their unique points of view.

Filmmakers attend each screening and give a post-show Q&A.

All screenings have free admission and are open to the general public.

In previous years the F4 MASTERS included Gillian Armstrong (LOVE, LUST AND LIES), Academy Award Nominee Bob Connolly (MRS CAREY’S CONCERT), and from the USA, Academy Award Winner Pamela Yates (GRANITO) and Academy Award Nominee Steve James (THE INTERRUPTERS).

Joost den Hartog, Director of AIDC said, “AIDC is delighted to be presenting F4 in association with the 2012 Adelaide Festival of Arts. What a time to get immersed in the world of documentary. The world’s most influential documentary professionals will land on Adelaide during the Adelaide Festival of Arts, and this will enhance Adelaide’s creative atmosphere.”

Paul Grabowsky, Artistic Director, 2012 Adelaide Festival said, "It is very exciting to have F4 as part of the Adelaide Festival 2012 program. It's great that such an exceptional professional development opportunity and program for Australia’s emerging documentary film makers is part of our Festival."

The full F4 program will be announced early February 2012.
