With the support of people like you, we’ve funded 26 grassroots organisations across 14 countries so far. Here’s the rundown on our organisation.

110000$116,000 raised and counting

When you purchase a film ticket a large percentage goes directly to projects supported through our Community Support Program. Sponsorship funds most of our event costs, so that a greater proportion of your money can go to corners of the world where it is most needed. Learn More
