How DAF Works
Philanthropic donors, grantmakers, charities and documentary filmmakers care about the same community-focused themes and issues. These shared interests can inspire partnerships that can be immensely powerful. Working together, each group can achieve mutual goals and effect long lasting change.

DAF does not make or commission ﬁlms. We receive and manage donations and grants from individuals, corporate organisations, charities, PAFs and foundations, and with them, support documentaries and campaigns. We facilitate the use of philanthropic donations to fund a wide range of documentaries, and our own operations.
DAF retains a small percentage of grants received for film projects. This is used to cover the administrative costs of providing information and resources to enable the philanthropic, charitable and documentary ﬁlm worlds to collaborate for collective impact. From the 1st August 2015 onwards, this retention fee is 5%.
