Three-year Matched Funding Campaign

Thank you to all the generous donors who contributed to our three-year matched funding campaign up to June 2021!


Although this campaign has now ended, please email our CEO, Mitzi Goldman if you would like to consider a multi-year pledge to support our work here.

Alternatively, please go to our donation page here.

Multi-year gift will provide security and allow us to execute our Strategic Goals:

    • Curate a diverse range of powerful films made by skilled filmmakers to shine a light on the most pressing contemporary issues that we face as a society, whilst providing hope and inspiration for action.
    • Build filmmaker capacity by developing more online resources and providing in-depth knowledge and support through workshops and mentoring.
    • Develop Impact Partner Networks across our seven Impact Areas: Environment, Human Rights & Social Justice, Health & Wellbeing, Indigenous, The Arts, Youth & Education, Women & Girls.
    • Strategically support Executive Produced and Sweetheart projects by surrounding powerful stories with passionate coalitions of partners (creatives, philanthropists, not-for-profits, educators and changemakers) who use the power of storytelling to bring about social change.
    • Continue creating unique programs that ensure diversity in the Australian film industry and add depth and nuance to our understanding of key issues: The Environmental Documentary Incubator, SheDoc Fellowships, The Indigenous Documentary Fellowship, Storyworks Early Stage Filmmaker Program, The Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Best Australian Documentary at Sydney Film Festival and ‘Australia Uncovered’ – a new slate of prime-time documentary on SBS.
    • Expand the use of our unique Measurement & Evaluation Framework, designed specifically for impact documentary.
    • Highlight the strongest impact strategies with online case studies that up-skill filmmakers and prove the model to funders.
