Generation Next Documentary Conference





Open Channel’s Generation Next Documentary Conference is a 2-day program of curated seminars, panel discussions, screenings and presentations that will allow Victoria’s emerging documentarians to engage with like-minded peers, learn from and meet those who have done it before, learn about existing opportunities for support and have their work viewed and critiqued.

The program will include sessions on the general landscape for emerging documentarians, current industry opportunities, how to access peer networks, ethical considerations, transmedia case studies, explore aesthetics, pitching hints, and how to best promote your work. There will also be screenings of works by new filmmakers and opportunities to meet peers and professionals. All the sessions will provide insights by experienced producers and directors and will give those wanting to carve out a career in documentary an opportunity to ask questions of those who make the decisions in the screen industry.

Presented by Open Channel in association with the Australian International Documentary Conference and Cinema Nova and supported by Film Victoria.
