SOCIAL IMPACT CAMPAIGN
In true UC Capitals style, the documentary aims to be bigger than a feature documentary.
The project's vision is to normalise and hero the broadcasting and media coverage of women in sport and provide inspiring, world-class, female role models for future generations.
For this reason, the documentary has created a social impact campaign through the Documentary Australia Foundation. The Documentary Australia Foundation is an organisation that enables impact documentary projects to raise tax-deductible funding and make it possible for passionate philanthropists to collaborate with filmmakers to tell stories that change lives.
