PANIC・BALL

      / pænɪkbɔːl / noun

Originating as a cute nickname for one of our founders and evolving into the company brand,
Panic Ball embodies the mix of excitement and anxiety inherent to the creative journey.
Through all our projects, we are committed to confronting challenges and transforming them into catalysts for creative growth.
Don’t Panic, Dream Big.

MISSION

Nestled in the intersection between art and commerce, Panic Ball’s ethos centres on inclusivity. We believe in the value of cultivating a safe,
supportive, and collaborative work environment that encourages everyone to explore creative possibilities and do what they love.

Our mission is to shine a spotlight on important topics such as mental health and female empowerment throughout our work.

Through our films and events, we hope to destigmatise mental health issues and ignite conversations that promote positive change.
We are passionate about empowering the next generation of filmmakers by providing them with opportunities, networking platforms,
and valuable experience within the filmmaking community.

By nurturing emerging talent, we seek to create a more diverse and inclusive industry for the future.
