Storytelling is at the heart of our movement to end poverty
Run a Films for Change Festival in October-November and raise funds and awareness through the power of story.
Film is one of the most powerful ways to share a story. Oaktree’s Films for Change festival will see young people in schools across the country organise film festivals for their friends and family. Each film will look at the harsh realities of poverty, as well as the inspiring people lifting themselves and their communities into a better way of life.
If you’re looking for a way to take action on extreme poverty this year, Oaktree’s Films for Change Festival is it. Sign up now, to raise both funds and awareness for our movement to end poverty - the next page will have all the resources you need to get started.
Oaktree’s Films for Change film festival will enable us to build a stronger movement to end poverty in 2014. The funds raised will support Oaktree's work to raise awareness of extreme poverty in Australia, and to create lasting social and political change. Together, we’ll challenge perceptions, start conversations, and inspire hope for a better world.
PS. Most of our festival films belong to our friends at the Why Poverty project, in South Africa. Shown all over the world, Why Poverty is an initiative of Steps - a non-profit organisation that combines documentary, new media, old media and outreach to get millions of people talking about big issues.
