Aviatrix Films is inspired by the courageous, innovative, and pioneering women who took to the skies in the early days of flight. It was extremely dangerous and required immense skill, determination, and adventurousness, plus a belief in achieving something greater when challenging ideas, expectations, and norms. Behind their bravery and boldness is a unique and personal story as meaningful as the heroism the world knows. We are passionate about storytelling, everything from small in scale to epic.
We want to make a difference in people’s lives. Sometimes that difference will be giving them a giggle or recognising that they aren’t alone, sharing someone else’s perspective with them so they can learn or improve their understanding of an issue or inspiring them to act for social justice and make positive change.
