Call Me Dad will premiere on the ABC on 26th November at 8.30 pm.

Call Me Dad is an important documentary which opens up the conversation about men’s violence and abusive behaviour. It illustrates very honestly what men stand to lose by choosing to use violence in their relationships; their families and the trust of those they love.”
Libby Davies, Chief Executive of White Ribbon Australia.

We’ve also just released our trailer! Check it out at https://www.facebook.com/callmedadfilm/

And please take a moment to share this too.

Broadcasting a day after White Ribbon Day and the UN Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Call Me Dad puts an uncompromising spotlight on voices that are rarely heard – the male perpetrators of family violence.

Call Me Dad may be a confronting insight into the world of violent perpetrators, however it is a reality Australians need to see and discuss.

We want to use Call Me Dad as a powerful engagement tool to further elevate the conversation on family violence and support meaningful change. Will you help us spread the word by sharing the broadcast event on social media?

Leading up to the broadcast we are holding thought leader previews and parliamentary screenings across Australia urging Australians to tune into ABC on November 26 and to organise a community screening following the broadcast.

Hosting a community screening will give people an opportunity to come together as a group to discuss the film and ways in which we can all play a part in addressing family violence. Would you like to host a screening?

We are very keen to hear your ideas for how we can use the film to amplify this important conversation.

Please keep in touch with us if you have any ideas.
