About us

Founded by the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, International Film Festival Rotterdam and the European Film Academy, the International Coalition for Filmmakers at Risk’s mission is to advocate for and to act in solidarity with filmmakers at risk. The Coalition acts in cases of persecution or threats to the personal safety of these filmmakers and will defend their right to continue their work, by mobilising the international film community.

Ambassadors

Artistic freedom is not a privilege – it is a human right. Standing in solidarity with our filmmaking colleagues and friends around the world, being deprived of their creative freedom has to be our honorable duty. Those who dare to risk their professional career and personal life for democracy and truth deserve our full respect and support.
