Documentary Australia Foundation

Documentaries inform, inspire and engage. 

Real stories provoke empathy, change minds, influence behaviour and bring communities together to catalyse systemic change.


Documentary Australia is Australia’s only not-for- profit organisation that promotes social change through documentary storytelling.

We raise awareness, create empathy and inspire action on important social issues.

By connecting independent documentary filmmakers with likeminded funders, individuals and organisations on the front-lines of social change, we amplify the issues in documentaries to encourage compassion, activism and social transformation.


Over the last ten years we have raised over $20m, with $14m as co-hosts of GoodPitch Australia.

This has allowed audiences to engage with films that inspire change across our seven issue areas:

- health & wellbeing

- human rights & social justice

- youth & education

- women & girls

- the environment

- indigenous 

- the arts


We celebrate our 10thanniversary this year,
