Since 2007, we supported over 250 projects in 70 different countries for a grant total of 1,5 million euros. With these projects more than a million people were reached.
We offer a start-up grant for new human rights film events and an impact grant for existing events that want to increase their impact or want to add new activities to their programmes. These events can take various forms, such as human rights film festivals, LGBTI film festivals and mobile cinema projects. Please note that we don’t finance film productions.
