Through the hard work of our community lead team and the support of our partners we released an award winning film for which our impact campaign extended our audience reach and social impact.

The film reached at least 3.5 million people and brought in close to $750,000 in income across theatrical, non theatrical, VOD and education sales. In addition, over $357,000 was raised for campaigns associated with the film including a school on Dujuan’s homelands.

The film reached critical and influential audiences, including but not limited to: the United Nations, Attorney Generals and their staff, Members of Parliament and policymakers across State, Territory and Federal governments, juvenile justice organisations and leaders, curriculum developers, universities, school leaders, teachers, students, and First Nations communities.

The film used its platform to spotlight related campaigns and amplify the profile of related work, highlighting First Nations-led organisations in education and youth justice. The film was instrumental in bringing greater awareness to the campaign to #RaiseTheAge. The film also offered significant support to Children’s Ground and the NIYEC campaign, #LearnOurTruth.

And most importantly, Dujuan and family are proud of the film. In My Blood It Runs is a part of Dujuan’s story, and his unique voice will continue to have an impact well beyond beyond the release of his book and film.
