Ozflix is a movie streaming platform like no other, we’re new, we’re on demand, and we’re all Australian. We are committed to making Aussie films easily accessible to both our local and international audiences through the highest quality streaming technologies available and we are on our way to sourcing ‘Every Aussie Movie. Ever.’

Our objective, or mission, of streaming every Aussie movie needs to be explained. Of course they will not all be available at launch, there are too many and they can be hard to find these days. Over the first few years we will steadily seek them out and add more Aussie movies, large and small, recent and classics, until we have them all, and unlike other services, they will stay on Ozflix and never be deleted.

Ozflix works proudly alongside not-for-profit entity The Australian Film Future Foundation to make historic Aussie features easily accessible to the public.

Auspicious Arts Projects is a not-for-profit creative community management organisation. We provide independent artists with a secure and accessible framework to assist them with creative developments and producing work.

Working with Auspicious means that artists have all the benefits and financial protection of working with a larger organisation, while remaining independent and in creative control. With an open door policy and over 25 years of industry experience, we’ve worked with projects across the complete independent arts spectrum. We sweat the small (and big) stuff so they don’t have to.

We also work with a range of arts organisations and local councils to provide administrative and financial support.

We are an inclusive workplace that celebrates diversity in all it’s forms and we welcome feedback regarding any of our communications and policies.

Balloon Tree Productions is all about bringing a sense of wonder to an audience. The name came from a moment of inspired symbolism – a tree grows as time goes on, with more and more branches forming. Balloons bring joy,  enthusiasm and cake – just like our films. Okay, our films won’t bring cake but there is a lot of joy and enthusiasm. 

The name came to company founder Matt Smolen back in 2006, when the idea of BTP as a company was just a seedling in the ground. Jump forward to today and that unifying idea has permeated the entire company, team and culture.

From television commercials to short films, social media content, music videos, training videos, corporate videos, podcasts, stills photography and more – that sense of fun, humour and wonder is at the forefront of all the cool stuff we create.

Humanitix is the not-for-profit ticketing platform that gives events impact. We make event management a delight, and direct 100% of profits from booking fees toward education projects.

How much of the booking fee goes to charity? ALL OF IT. We get asked this a lot. We get it. It’s why we like everyone to know that Humanitix is a registered charity, not a for-profit business. We don’t have any shareholders to pay dividends to, or  investors to pay back. Right now in Australia, Humanitix will amplify the impact of all events  donating 100% of their proceeds to Bushfire relief efforts by donating all booking fee profits from that event to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.

We’re a charity for the tech-generation. We don’t ask for donations. We ask anyone running an awesome event to use our platform so that your booking fees can change lives.
