AIDC and Screen Queensland, in collaboration with Screenworks, today announce the debut of REGIONALITY CAIRNS, a one-day documentary and factual screen industry event specifically for practitioners in regional Queensland, set to take place at the Cairns Performing Arts Centre (CPAC) on Friday 2 September 2022.

Including project pitching opportunities, sector networking, and exclusive masterclasses and industry panels featuring local and global documentary and factual talent, REGIONALITY CAIRNS is designed to provide national and international exposure for nonfiction screen practitioners from regional and Far North Queensland.

With a full program of speakers, sessions, and industry guests to be announced in August, early registration is now open to any practitioner interested in documentary and/or factual screen content.

As part of REGIONALITY, AIDC, Screen Queensland and Screenworks are calling for regional Queensland-based project teams to apply for the REGIONALITY Pitch. Screen practitioners with market-ready documentary or factual features, singles, or series projects are eligible to apply.

Up to four project teams will be selected for international training, mentorship, and trailer editing, before their project is pitched to key local and international buyers, commissioners and funders attending the event. Each selected project team will also receive free REGIONALITY CAIRNS registration for up to two people.

The deadline for pitch submissions is 11.59pm (AEST) Sunday 17 July 2022. More information here.

Tickets for REGIONALITY CAIRNS and applications for the REGIONALITY Pitch are now open. REGIONALITY will be held at the Cairns Performing Arts Centre in Cairns, Queensland on Friday 2 September 2022. Visit the REGIONALITY CAIRNS page for more information.
