Introduction for filmmakers
Shift your vision. Any subject that shares the aims of a philanthropic organisation may be suitable for financial support.
Philanthropic Grantmakers, Charities 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.
The Documentary Australia Foundation increases the ability of documentary filmmakers to make films that matter and that may otherwise not be made. The Foundation helps documentary filmmakers to open viewers eyes to stories and points of view on critical issues they may otherwise not have had access to.
With the potential for a new sustainable funding model, documentary filmmakers may be better placed to make the important documentaries that they are capable of. The issues which the documentaries address should become more visible.
What is Documentary Australia Foundation?
The Documentary Australia Foundation is a private philanthropic initiative that aims to inspire and nurture partnerships between philanthropic grantmakers, charities and documentary filmmakers.
