Documentary Australia is a new philanthropic initiative to attract private money to the documentary industry. Its focus is to educate and encourage philanthropy in the area of documentary and to inform private foundations, charities and filmmakers of the benefits of working together.

There are approximately 1,500 trusts and foundations in Australia which give over half a billion dollars in estimated donations each year to health, education, the environment, social welfare, indigenous issues and the arts. Foundations need to see that documentaries are an extension of grant making activities. Filmmakers are encouraged to shift their thinking towards new partnerships with charities and foundations.

This presentation is a launch of a comprehensive website to be completed throughout 2007.
