Documentary Australia Foundation


The Documentary Australia Foundation (DAF) is unique in Australia as the only organisation that builds and nurtures partnerships between filmmakers, non profits and philanthropic funders to enable them to tell stories and build campaigns that inspire social change. Our mission is to encourage collaborations to make significant stories that address issues affecting our lives and to facilitate community engagement around stories to change behaviours.

Involvement in film

Our organisation has brought millions of dollars to the documentary sector over the last few years and has been instrumental in the production and audience engagement of significant high impact storytelling. We have brokered partnerships between filmmakers and funders and evaluated the impact of their work.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
Thank you everyone.
