Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC) 2004
Fremantle, Western Australia: 26-28 February 2004.

The AIDC is one of the largest recurrent screen industry conferences in
Australia averaging between 500 to 800 national and international delegates. It
provides a market place for documentary product for national and international
buyers and distributors, showcases the work of Australian and international
documentary makers, and creates a forum to discuss content, craft, technology
and future directions.

Conference theme: The Journey

AIDC 2004 will explore the theme of ‘The Journey'. For the documentary maker
the theme is two-fold. From its humble beginnings documentary has evolved,
incorporating new technologies, styles and mediums along the way. In addition,
each documentary production is a journey for the individual filmmaker, learning
more about its subject, contemporary theory, craft skills and marketplace

In keeping with the AIDC National Executive’s commitment to integrate academic
and industry practitioners, AIDC 2004 encourages the pre-conference Web
publication of peer reviewed papers. Rather than formally presenting papers
during conference sessions, panel participants will instead speak to the ideas
and issues already raised in their uploaded Web papers.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

• Refugee journeys and/or the diasporic experience
• Documentary historiography: the journey of a genre/discipline
• Documentary’s technological developments/determinism
• Industry gate-keeping: governments, markets, audiences
• Re-enactment and ‘historical’ documentary: performance and drama
• Counter-practices of local consumption (festivals, niche programming)
• Reality, surveillance and the new panopticon

Abstracts of not more than 300 words with a brief CV should be sent to Dr Mick
Broderick, Murdoch University <[log in to unmask]>, no later than 30
November, 2003.  Accepted, completed papers must be submitted by 7 February

Closing date for early bird registrations: 1 December 2003
