How to support us:
- Foundation Giving
- CSR Giving
The Indian Documentary Foundation is helping to develop both the culture of documentary and the production of documentary in India. We want to remove the myth that documentaries are boring. We aim to make people fall in love with documentaries and see India like you have never seen it, see the world like you have never seen it. We will bring you films that are honest and true.
We create workshops and mount screenings and festivals that stimulate conversation and community between filmmakers, industry and the general public. We work towards policy change, social change and individual change using the medium of documentary.
Our film screenings and innovative workshops across cities will change the way a filmmaker tells his story, making for more innovative films, educating the youth about the power and relevance of documentary., and above all touches our soul to contribute to change.
Our outreach program - TriggerPitch is in its 2nd year and we have been successful in pushing boundaries and widening participation. Both influential individuals and organizations have participated to work towards awareness and change.
If you share the ambition for social change, creative freedom and a more literate Indian film culture, we invite you to join hands with IDF to extend an arm to the artistic, independent film community. You could either support an individual film or film-maker and see your contribution recognized on the screen, or you can help us in our wider work in the field of audience awareness and film development. If you would like to contribute, whatever the amount, in order to help make change, please mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
IDF would like to work with a range of foundations and charities, governmental and trans-national agencies. We are seeking grants from significant national, regional, community, and family organizations that share our commitment to social and cultural development.
We thank the IDFA Jan Vrijman Fund which has extended financial support to TriggerPitch for 2012. The Jan Vrijman Fund plays a very important and influential role, supporting documentary filmmakers and festivals in developing countries. Its goal is to stimulate local film cultures and to turn the creative documentary into a truly global film art.
IDF wants to showcase the fact that knowledge shared in an entertaining manner can have a stronger emotional impact and much higher recall value. Documentaries can be enthralling as well as informative. We would like audiences to feel, to know and question, be inspired and think. Many films will touch on the big questions facing India that many corporate responsibility programmes focus on education, opportunity, health and social justice. By supporting films on these subjects, you can help raise awareness, influence politicians and the relevant authorities, that can lead to social change.
IDF aims to strengthen the existing documentary activities in India by adding value not just financially but also by collaborating as Knowledge partners. IDF aims to engage participation into this field from like minded individuals and corporates that have a vision and a desire that match our own.
