Documentary Australia Foundation
Australia Foundation (DAF) is Australia's only independent non-profit
organisation that creates social impact through documentary film.
DAF was established in 2008 to make it possible
for philanthropists to tax-effectively collaborate with filmmakers to tell
stories that change lives.
DAF has helped raise more than $20
million for Australian documentary filmmakers, allowing them to share their stories
and passion around Australia and the world.
DAF makes it easy for documentary
filmmakers to fund their films and documentary lovers to support social change.
