Not for profits have a story to tell, and filmmakers like to tell stories.

Philanthropic grantmakers, not for profits and documentary filmmakers care about the same community-minded themes and issues. These shared interests can inspire partnerships that can be immensely powerful. Working together, these groups can achieve their mutual goals and effect long lasting change.

Documentary Australia Foundation enables not for profits to advance their causes through effective partnering with grantmakers and filmmakers who share their vision.

Documentary Australia Foundation encourages collaboration between philanthropic grantmakers, not for profits and documentary filmmakers. In doing so, it facilitates the delivery of messages and perspectives that need to get out into the wider community.
