Partnerships and Collaborations


Tipping Point Film Fund is delighted to be developing working partnerships with a range of like-minded organisations:

Project Partners:

The Co-operative

The co-operative has funded the development of The Power of Us, a cinema documentary about the power and possibility of co-operation.

Trust GreenbeltTrust Greenbelt is the gift of the Greenbelt community to global and UK initiatives that find ways of combining faith, justice and the arts – in their broadest sense. Festival goers give tens of thousands of pounds to Trust Greenbelt each year which is then distributed in small and medium size grants. Trust Greenbelt has contributed to the development funding of TPFF website and in 2016, a grant towards our Make Apartheid History project.

Christian AidChristian Aid is the official development agency of the churches in Britain and Ireland. They are mandated to work on relief, development and advocacy for poverty eradication. Christian Aid’s essential purpose is to expose the scandal of poverty, to help in practical ways to root it out from the world and to challenge and change structures and systems that favour the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalised. Christian Aid was an early development funder of Cashback (working title) and commissioned TPNS to make a short film on the campaign history of the organisation.

TrocaireTrócaire is the official overseas development agency of the Catholic Church in Ireland. It was set up by the Irish Catholic Bishops in 1973 to express the concern of the Irish Church for the suffering of the world’s poorest and most oppressed people. Trócaire work through global Catholic networks and with local partners on the ground. When they help people, they work with them, so that they drive the entire process themselves. Trócaire has made a grant of 7,500 EURO towards the finishing fund for Open Bethlehem.

Development and PeaceDevelopment and Peace is the official international development organisation of the Catholic Church in Canada and the Canadian member of Caritas Internationalis. Development and Peace are support initiatives by people in the Global South to take control of their lives and they educate Canadians about North-South issues. Development and Peace has shown it’s support with a grant of $20,000 Canadian towards the finishing fund for Open Bethlehem.

McCabe Educational Trust. We are delighted to have secured the grant support of the charitable arm of McCabe Travel – a company specialising in pilgrimages to the Holy Land. McCabe’s support will enable the post-production costs of Open Bethlehem to be met.
