Andrew Wiseman, CEO and Director of the Australian International Documentary Conference Director is stepping down, following a successful event held in Melbourne earlier this month.
Wiseman, whose credits include Kokoda, My Brother Jack, Curtin and Waiting at the Royal is returning to his own film projects.
“This has been a great experience. The AIDC is a wonderful organisation that makes a major contribution to documentary, factual and unscripted content in Australia and internationally,” he said.
“I’ve been very happy to have been part of it, but after a great deal of reflection, I’ve decided my own projects are now my priority.”
Co-Chairs, Fiona Gilroy and Denise Eriksen said, “Andrew and his team have maintained the trajectory of growth since the conference moved to Melbourne in 2016 and there’s a truly fabulous launching pad for further growth under a new Director/CEO”.”
Wiseman successfully steered the 30th anniversary conference, which attracted 678 delegates, speakers and industry decision makers from 14 different countries.
The position will be advertised in coming weeks. Andrew Wiseman will stay in the position until the new incumbent is appointed – and provide assistance during the transition period.
