Recent debates have highlighted the seeming demise of one-off documentaries by independent filmmakers. Current commissioning in the factual entertainment world is geared towards series and not the intimate exploration of the documentary filmmaker. Screen Australia and the major public broadcasters have a stranglehold on who gets financed in the Australian documentary world. What can be done about it? Should anything be done? Is this the end of the one off documentary? This panel will explore a new path to documentary financing in Australia.
Moderator: Bob Connolly Panel: Tom Zubrycki, Jennifer Crone, Trevor Graham & Genevieve Bailey
