Helping filmmakers can range from humanitarian aid (basic needs, medical, accommodation, relocation, legal – visa, residence permit), supporting filmmakers documenting the war with filming equipment and gear, showing video evidence of the war, access to work to relocated filmmakers (work permit, job ads), easy-to-access information on support available, support to finalize interrupted projects – to showing Ukrainian films.

We believe that filmmakers in Ukraine critically need our community’s support as they fall between the cracks of institutional support at this point.
