jtv docs initiative - funding opportunity for documentary producers

ABC TV and the Australian Film Commission (AFC) are calling for proposals from emerging filmmakers who are 35 years and under for their jtv docs initiative. Seeking fresh approaches to half-hour and one-hour documentaries that explore music, ideas, culture and contemporary issues through the eyes of generations X, Y and Z. jtv is an extraordinary new on-air adventure that ABC TV will roll out later this year. A multiplatform, multilayered brand which will exist on the ABC main channel, ABC 2, online and other emerging technologies, jtv will comprise:

# a weekly jtv series on the main ABC channel on Saturday night, taking viewers inside the belly of the beast that is triple j.
# a weekly jtv omnibus on ABC 2 and extensive jtv material available with online components.
# the recently launched jtv live, a performance strand featuring the latest and hottest Australian musical talent doing one-hour sets for television, recorded with a live audience.

The Living Room

The Living Room Series III is a weekly 30-minute magazine style TV programme. It's about artists, musicians, filmmakers and other inspirational characters that operate away from established art institutions, record companies and production houses. Each show is made up of three or four different clips –one of the clips features a New Zealander living overseas and the remainder focuses on Kiwi's living in New Zealand. A different personality or artist hosts The Living Room each week from their own living space, giving the viewer a look at New Zealand's creative evolution through the eyes of its artists. There is no 'fame' prerequisite for people featured on The Living Room, just the ability to entertain and inspire. The Living Room lets the artists tell their own story. The Living Room series 1-3 were created by Sticky Pictures. read more or visit for more details
