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
Documentary Australia Foundation hopes to deepen engagement with a range of partners around these impact areas.
