“Film has the unique ability to convey the essence of a social challenge in ways that arouse people’s emotions, change their perspectives and motivate them to act”
Film Driven Social Change
Arts in Action is a public film screening enterprise presenting world changing documentaries that inspire and empower audiences to take action on global social issues. Arts in Action was founded in March 2011 by Angie Muccillo with a mission to showcase the visionary work of socially active filmmakers and to promote the voices of local artists, performers, art activists and organisations with a message for social change and justice.
Arts in Action presents social issue films that empower audiences with the information, perspectives and resources for creating a more just, sustainable, and democratic society. Films selected for screening are connected to grassroots movements that engage and inspire audiences to actively take part in making a difference in the world. Watch moving and thought provoking films, meet everyday changemakers, learn about local and global action campaigns and discuss films as a community in a public setting with other socially conscious minded people.
Arts in Action hosted a monthly “Social Action Film Night” at Bella Union Trades Hall (May 2012 – May 2014) and continues to present regular screenings throughout the year. Sign up to the mailing list for screening details.
