Formerly the WOW Film Festival, For Film's Sake was founded in 2017 in order to deliver innovative support across the entire film value chain.


Lights. Camera. Activism.

For Film's Sake is driven by a small but dedicated bunch of activists and cultural leaders. Reaching beyond the domestic Australian market, FFS has built a network of partners and affiliates in Europe, the US and South East Asia to scale the work of rebalancing representation in the screen industries.

Currently our Executive Director Sophie Mathisen is undertaking a Churchill Fellowship to continue to build FFS' strategic support base. We are eagerly awaiting her upcoming report which is the first global snapshot of screen activism post-#metoo.
