Filming Begins on the story of the mighty Darebin Falcons

Once upon a time a few girls came together with a shared desire to play footy. Fast forward nearly 30 years, and you have one of the most successful female sporting clubs in Australia. In 2005, Darebin City Council fought to provide Darebin Women’s Sports Club with its own purpose built facilities.  

This is a story of what happens when you invest in women’s sport, and challenge the status quo of gender inequality.
