The Rebel Kat Mission To finance quality film and television that empowers the voices and stories of women, people of colour, members of the LGBTQ community, and people with disabilities; within the narrative and story elements on the screen and the creative talents behind the screen (ie: behind the camera), directors, cinematographers, designers, screenwriters, producers, composers, editors, and so on.
The Rebel Kat Vision Embraces diversity and inclusion; we amplify the former, and support the latter. We are ceaselessly committed to equality and recognise that our strengths lie in the richness of our differences. We are avid story-tellers with a passion for collaborative ventures, on stage and screen.
