Melbourne Documentary Film Festival Extended Open Call

Festivals, Open calls | 12 July 2017 - 16 July 2017

The Melbourne Doc Fest each year curates world class features direct from some of the hottest most prestigious documentary film festivals in the world like Sheffield Doc Fest, Traverse City Film Festival Doc NYC, SXSW, Doc Edge and IDFA. But what matters to us most is documentaries that are well-made, compelling, thought provoking, passionate and relevant to Australian audiences.
The Melbourne Doc Fest is one of the world newest documentary film festivals and one of the most fun and interesting stop overs on the international documentary film festival circuit.

The Melbourne Documentary Film Festival is the only festival in Australasia to provide feedback on submissions (upon request). The feedback is simple, straight forward, positive and constructive (like a review) and gives you an insight into what the curator thought of your documentary and will be provided to you by 22 July 2017 if you want it by applying to [email protected]
We also are looking to simulcast part of the festival in 2017 by taking it online via Beama VOD services and take Melbourne to the world.
Our categories like Documentary Photography have never been attempted by a documentary film festival in the southern hemisphere and are ground breaking.
Our values:
We want to highlight and promote all documentaries, but in particular:
• Documentaries from Women in Film
• Aboriginal and Indigenous documentaries
• Asian cinema
• LGBTI documentaries
