At the heart of Big Stories is collaboration between communities and filmmakers in residence. Stories are made with not about communities. This is a unique model of community engagement and participation through media and an opportunity for the rich repository of local stories found in and around small towns to be told with global impact.

From the Longriders Motorcycle Club in Murray Bridge, the Ngarrendjeri community of Raukkan on the shores of Lake Alexandrina, the Men’s Shed in Port Augusta to the Tampuon people of Ban Lung on the edge of the jungle in Northern Cambodia, Big Stories aims to connect local stories to build a diverse and inspiring global portrait of country life.
