About Films For Change

Films For Change supports the diverse voices and free expression of independent storytellers and celebrates the power of documentary to improve our understanding of the world. Our events serve as stimuli for discussion and an opportunity to support filmmakers striving to shine a light on the greatest issues of today.

Documentary storytelling can have powerful results. Films about real issues can ignite conversations and spark policy changes like few other things can.
BLACKFISH exposed the mistreatment of orca whales and SeaWorlds share prices took a hit.
INVISIBLE WAR (a film about rape in the military) triggered changes in the way sexual abuse charges are handled.
GRANITO: HOW TO NAIL A DICTATOR helped convict Guatemala’s General Rios Montt of war crimes.

Films For Change is Australias’ leading documentary screening society, with multiple events in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Byron Bay and Canberra every month.

“Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet.
We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future”.
