With the support of people like you, we’ve funded 28 grassroots organisations across 14 countries so far. Here’s the rundown on our organisation.

$124,000 raised and counting

When you purchase a film ticket it funds 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


Our organisation is run by volunteers

There are 12 members of SLAFF from 8 different countries who work across community development, arts, law and academia. We contract a production manager and a sponsorship coordinator for the main festival but everything else is heart-powered! Learn about our team!

Real cultural exchange with Latin America

Since 2005 our crew have built strong links with Latin American filmmakers and distributors earning us the title of ‘Embassy of Latin American Cinema in Oceania’ (LatAm Cinema 2016). So you can be sure of the very best cinema through SLAFF!
