In partnership with News Digital Networks Australia’s (News DNA) forthcoming new female content platform the With Her in Mind Network (whimn.com.au), six female directors will each be funded to make a 180 second documentary, designed to make the viewer ‘do a 180’ on a topic relevant to Australian women. The documentaries will be available to view for free on whimn.com.au later in 2017, and will springboard deeper analysis and public discussion around the six topics on the website and on whimn.com.au’s social media.

whimn.com.au’s  Executive Editor Melissa Overman noted, “Co-funding Doco180 will allow us to offer our female audience access to exclusive video content of a premium quality, which is designed to have gravitas and start conversation. I encourage applicants to submit documentary ideas that will resonate with Australian women – what challenges us, what motivates us, what makes us laugh. We’re interested in everything from politics to the environment to work to kids – no topic is off limits. The most important element is that all Doco180 applications must be female-centric stories told by women.”
