Background:

The project has partnered with SBS for Donate Life Week. Through SBS Voices, a trusted platform known for highly emotive content and human stories, SBS will help launch Donate Life Week.

This social campaign will utilise partner posts promoting 5 x videos by the FilmLife filmmakers to leverage SBS Voices’ audiences, targeting potential organ donors and reaching new audiences beyond regular followers. The sixth video introduction will be released in the future.

Project aims:

Three young diverse filmmakers were provided grants to produce films to take increase participation of young people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and their networks to register for organ and tissue donation.

Partners and funding:

FilmLife is a joint initiative between the NSW Multicultural Health Communication Service (MHCS) and NSW Organ and Tissue Donation Service (OTDS) with support from Diversity Arts Australia (DARTS).

The African-Australian Youth FilmLife forum to launch Norah Masige’s short film was presented in 2021 in partnership with Western Sydney Local Health District and our project partners above.
