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.


The unconditional support of filmmakers is the best support a filmmaker at risk can get. If there could be an institution representing all the world’s famous and respected filmmakers, they could then at any time, support actively and efficiently any filmmaker in danger.
