What is social impact?

To make a social impact is to empower audiences to think, feel or act differently about an issue.
Through documentary we can create social impact.

Documentary film creates social impact by:

  • changing minds
  • changing behaviours
  • building communities
  • changing structures


Social impact is important because it can:

  • unlock philanthropic support
  • create pathways to new audiences
  • create pathways to change


We have identified 6 priority areas where documentary films are making social impact. We know that these areas also align with philanthropic interest. 

  • INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES
  • YOUTH & EDUCATION 
  • HEALTH & WELLBEING
  • HUMAN RIGHTS & SOCIAL JUSTICE
  • ARTS
  • ENVIRONMENT

Documentary Australia Foundation hopes to deepen engagement with a range of partners around these impact areas. 
If you are passionate about change in these areas and want to get involved, please contact katie@documentaryaustralia.com.au
