We make a difference
with documentary

Documentary Australia is a unique not-for-profit that supports powerful stories for social change. Since 2008, we have supported hundreds of filmmakers to tell important stories through documentary across seven key areas: Environment, Health & Wellbeing, Human Rights & Social Justice, Women & Girls, Indigenous, Youth & Education and The Arts.

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

We amplify the reach of these documentaries by supporting their impact strategies and guiding filmmakers, philanthropists and communities on how to use documentaries to further their advocacy and impact goals.

The organisation is steered by the values of integrity, inclusiveness, innovation and inspiration to achieve four key aims: Great Films, Great Partnerships, Great Impact, and Leadership and Advocacy. More About Us.
