Documentary Australia Foundation is a unique not-for-profit that ensures important stories are told and seen, supported by powerful social impact campaigns.

We provide approved projects with access to our DGR status, allowing independent filmmakers to access philanthropic funding and enabling donors to tax effectively support the issues they care about.

Our networks, relationships and expertise allow us to connect talented storytellers with like-minded funders, educators, policy-makers and community groups.

We amplify their impact by helping them to work together and by guiding them on how to use documentaries to further their advocacy and impact goals.

None of this could be achieved without our philanthropic partners. Their generous contributions support the impact these documentaries make.
