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.
Donate here choosing the Women & Girls impact area when you check out and we will note your pledge for 2022 and 2023.
