More Funds For Young Doco Makers

Ever wanted to film your own documentary but don't have the funds? Well, now here's your chance.  ABC Director of Television Kim Dalton has announced a further $400,000 funding will be made available for young documentary makers under round five of the triple j TV docs initiative. ABC TV and Screen Australia are once again putting out a nationwide call to emerging filmmakers to submit proposals for one-hour or half-hour documentaries.

To date, 15 documentaries have been commissioned through the triple j TV docs initiative, enabling emerging filmmakers from every state across Australia to explore themes such as celebrity, war, love, sexuality, loss and survival, and to make some of the strongest narrative based documentaries in recent years.

Many of these films have gone on to win awards and appear in festivals in Australia and overseas. Previous triple j TV docs include the award-winning 5 Lost at Sea; Rock ‘n’ Roll Nerd; Searching 4 Sandeep and Playing in the Shadows.
