Discovery Ignite


Discovery Ignite is a funding initiative established for film-makers in Australia and New Zealand to collaborate and co-produce original local content with global appeal. 

The initiative gives independent film-makers in Australia and New Zealand the opportunity to pitch documentaries to Discovery Networks for local co-productions. The initiative also allows Discovery Networks to showcase the work of local documentary filmmakers on the international scene with its worldwide audience. 

Producers can submit program ideas that sit within our designated content categories - these change from year-to-year. Successful candidates will then be invited to pitch in person. Producers that have been invited to pitch should note supporting visual materials will be required for this stage of the process.
