Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe

WE CHAMPION GENDER EQUALITY AND SUPPORT THE EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN AND GIRLS WORLDWIDE.

Documentaries can play a powerful role in increasing awareness, exposing inequality, shifting attitudes, promoting positive examples of empowerment and influencing social change for women and girls.

We also accelerate the development of women’s careers in film through our SheDoc Fellowships.

BECOME A STRATEGIC PARTER OF OUR WOMEN & GIRLS IMPACT AREA.
AMPLIFY YOUR IMPACT OVER THE NEXT THREE YEARS WITH DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR MATCHED FUNDING.

Over the last 12 years, Documentary Australia has shown that documentaries can be used to raise public awareness, encourage advocacy and drive legislative change for a number of issues. See our story here.

Support our highly experienced team to provide ongoing strategic support to powerful films and impact campaigns across a broad range of issues affecting women and girls.

We will do this by:

– Curating for excellence and identifying and nurturing high potential projects through filmmaker support programs and one-on-one mentoring.

– Developing impact goals and strategies with key impact partners to ensure that filmmakers understand the issues and how they can best complement and support frontline organisations.

– Strengthening Impact Partner Networks of NGOs, activists, community groups, corporates and philanthropists so they are empowered to use storytelling to educate, advocate and inspire.

– Developing a suite of films that build momentum for change over time and that explore varied and nuanced perspectives.

ROSEMARY’S WAYHER SOUND, HER STORY
Rosemary’s Way is a celebration of the remarkable Rosemary Kariuki and her unique work in drawing migrant women out of their suburban isolation, into connection with other cultures, so they can better participate in Australian life. In the film, Rosemary is our host, our guide, our effervescent facilitator; but the key characters are the migrant women who are drawn into her wake. By following Rosemary over the course of a year on her various adventures with these women, the film takes us on a deep dive into their lives. We are witness to intimate revelations, that are uncensored and come straight from the heart, as the women share their experiences with other women. And what we discover is surprising and unexpected.
Her Sound, Her Story is an intimate conversation unveiling the personal experiences, histories and significant social impacts of women in the Australian music industry. Featuring more than 45 artists spanning six decades, its unique narrative brims with rage, strength, beauty and triumph: a moving and powerful dialogue that extends beyond the music industry to ask, “Where do we want women’s voices to sit in the world today?”
