Tipping Point North South

Tipping Point North South (TPNS) is a co-operative that supports and initiates creative, campaign-driven projects that advance the global social justice agenda. It is a ‘for the benefit of community’ co-operative, set up to work in the film and creative industries as well as within the not-for-profit sector ie with colleagues and partners in the international NGO campaign community. Its primary interests are to serve ‘community’ at all levels – from local to national to international – through these two key routes and with a particular focus on global social, economic and environmental justice issues.

It trades as Tipping Point Film Fund (TPFF) through which the majority of its activity is based and it works with/supports film-makers to maximise impact through campaigns that run alongside their feature-length documentary films. As it has evolved, TPNS has also developed its own stand-alone campaigns:  The Five Percent Campaign ,Make Apartheid History and From Pink to Prevention

Finally, TPNS works in partnership with a number of others organisations on a range of issue based projects/events – usually with film as a component, but not always. It also has a consultancy arm offering advice on film/development/education/events programming.

Tipping Point North South has received vital and long-term support through the support of The co-operative, the primary sponsor of Tipping Point Film Fund.

We can offer in-house expertise in film programming, collaborative events, social change campaigning, where film is the key tool to understanding more deeply the big issues of our day, in particular the relationships between the developed, rich world and the developing world – the global south.
