We travel the world to create and present award-winning films to you, our much loved audience.

Proud Mother Pictures is an innovative Film and TV production and distribution company with a strong focus on diverse stories for international audiences. Our first feature documentary I AM ELEVEN put us on the map thanks to a record theatrical release in Australia and the US, winning multiple awards across the world. We pride ourselves on our passionate and successful audience engagement and outreach strategies. We say 50% is making the work and 50% is making sure people see it.

Our film I AM ELEVEN was heralded a 'Triumph of Self-Distribution' by The Australian newspaper after a record theatrical release in Australia spanning over 8 months. The film became the highest grossing Australian documentary to be released in US theatres – playing for 17 months and reaching over 100 cities. It was also named New York Times Critic's Pick.

We are currently working on a slate of new projects including HAPPY SAD MAN which unpicks assumptions and resists generalisations to get at the raw emotions and complex inner lives of a diverse group of Australian men. Set for release in 2018.
