Solidarity with Ukraine

If you wish to support the work of ICFR, you can donate

While aware of the massive scale of the humanitarian disaster that the Russian army’s invasion of Ukraine is already causing, and of our own limited resources, ICFR stands by the Ukrainian film community, and the Ukrainian people, in such trying times. ICFR, its founding partners and its wider network, put themselves at the disposal of Ukrainian filmmakers now. We will not be answering the question of what Ukrainian colleagues need, we will be there for them as they define their requests.

ICFR’s mandate includes support through lobbying the international film community for cases of filmmakers at risk, what applies automatically to almost every Ukrainian filmmaker in Ukraine today, as well as to the many anti-war filmmakers of Russia and Belarus. We urge film professionals and organizations around the world to join us in our efforts and to support us as we try to be of use to our colleagues in such terrible times.

ICFR’s mandate also includes advocacy with governments to provide protective measures, or relocation and safe residency, to filmmakers at risk.

In addition, ICFR will be working relentlessly to prepare its small emergency fund, to be able to help in legal fees or temporary relocation expenses, or any such small but necessary immediate funding.

We will remain on the side of our Ukrainian colleagues, believing in their choices today, and making sure that they know the world of film stands by their side.
