Through the documentaries Lucent and Dominion plus dozens of investigations, FTP has worked with activists across Australia, and sometimes the world, to reveal the reality of what happens behind the closed doors of the animal agriculture industries.

Behind Closed Doors was juried by award winning photographer and photo-journalist, Jo-Anne McCarthur who kindly supported the event along with her organisation, We Animals Media. 

We’d like to thank our sponsors who donated prizes and helped make our opening event a truly special evening
