ELEVATE is our program that supports the work of new and emerging socially conscious filmmakers. When you produce work with Think Films, part of every budget goes towards ELEVATE to be used to assist the early stage development of their feature documentary projects. These projects are overseen by Lara who provides support and mentorship to these creatives, and working alongside her are a number of seasoned industry professionals who also provide coaching across a range of areas including producing, directing, and editing.

Through this program we honour Lara’s commitment to elevate those filmmakers whose perspectives we believe need to be shared. This program is built to support those storytellers and change makers with a passion for social change in creating impact films that improve our understanding of the world, spark conversation, and inspire audiences to make their own change.
