‘Films Work’ is a program that supports Tasmanian not-for-profits to use films for social change.  With support from the Tasmanian Community Fund, participants will work with Wide Angle Tasmania to learn;

  • how to find and use high-quality films to support your organisation’s mission;
  • how to create inhouse videos to document your impact and create more engagement on the web and social media; and
  • how to work with professional filmmakers to develop compelling stories that connect and engage your stakeholders.

EOI's for 'Films Work' 2022 are now closed.

'Films Work' starts with a 2-day workshop in Hobart. This fast, fun and information-packed workshop covers all the basics for not for profit leaders to use film for social change. During the workshop you will start to formulate the strategy for using films within your organisation over the following 6 months.   

Following the workshop each organisation receives six mentoring meetings designed to create an action plan and stay on track to implement your film strategy (including hosting a film screening, creating video content and developing a brief to produce a professional short film). These sessions are provided each month by phone, zoom or in-person and are tailored to the needs of your organisation.

The ‘Films Work’ program requires an ongoing commitment from the participants – but it will produce outstanding results for organisations that are serious about using film to amplify their mission.

WHAT DOES THE PROGRAM COST?

Each organisation contributes $50 towards the cost of the program. Each organisation is required to cover any costs associated with attending the two day workshop in South Hobart (including travel and accommodation if required).  Participating organisations will need access to internet/phone to participate in the mentoring sessions.The Tasmanian Community Fund and Wide Angle Tasmania covers the remaining costs of the workshop and mentorship sessions.

WHO IS THE PROGRAM AIMED AT?

This opportunity is open to any small or medium not-for-profit organisation operating in Tasmania.  (Using the ACNC definition - a small organisation has annual revenue under $250,000, a medium organisation has revenue $250,000 - $1 Million).  Each organisation is required to have two participants attend the workshop (this can include employees, board members or volunteers) who can commit time to develop and implement a strategy to use film in their organisation during 2022.

PARTICIPANT FEEDBACK ON THE 2021 WORKSHOP:

“Loved being able to try out skills in real time. Enjoyed the access to the plain English documents and knowing we will have those resources to hand. The session helped us clarify how to scope small and larger projects as well as form a brief to a filmmaker. Loved the speed networking session and viewing different pieces of work. Enjoyed time and space to think how we can make this happen in our organisation.”

– Rikki Mawad – Connect 42

“I honestly loved this workshop! It had such a great variety of things to learn, while being structured, practical and extremely inspiring. Meeting other NFPs and getting the amazing opportunity to network with filmmakers was just brilliant.”

- Jennifer Gason - Landcare

"Very worthwhile investment of tome for not for profits. I can see how beneficial it will be getting our heads in this game better. A big thank you to TCF for once again thinking outside the square for NFP's and allowing access to the gaps in our industry that are so needed." 

- Shandel Pile – Burnie Community House
