CFP: Science Exchange: Call for stories - Deadline: Jan. 24, 2011

Science Exchange: Call for stories.

Got a great idea for a science based documentary or factual production?

The RiAus in association with the Australian International Documentary Conference are calling for anyone with a science story to submit their story ideas to an exclusive forum of international documentary producers and broadcasters.

The aim is to create collaborative science-documentary projects for the internet, television and/or feature documentary release.

This is an international program with submissions accepted from all over the world, and an opportunity to see your idea become a documentary series.

Producers are always looking for subjects with:
• Hot Topics (The Future, Energy Alternatives, Medical Advances, The Environment, etc)
• Innovative Formats (things never seen or tried before)
• Character Hosts (interesting charismatic personalities)
• Provocation (challenging topics, alternative viewpoints, controversy)
• Excitement (amazing stories, adventure, mystery, travelogue, discovery)

So be creative, and remember to tell your story with a popular-science angle.

Your story will be viewed by a team of international broadcasters and producers. If selected, you will be invited to participate in a development workshop and discussion panel based on your idea in Adelaide at the Australian International Documentary Conference.

Submissions close Monday 24th January 2011, and the successful submissions will be announced in early February.
