DOCU/HELP: Support for the Film Community in Ukraine!

03 March 2022

The NGO Docudays and Docudays UA festival team has created an initiative to support Ukrainian filmmakers who are bravely and daringly documenting the events of the war in Ukraine right now: recording war crimes, filming footage for the international media and for their future films which will later give the world a more in-depth perspective on the situation in our country.

 

We are working in several directions of support.

 

Thanks to our partners and the festival’s friends, we are able to help filmmakers by providing them with the most necessary filming equipment—that is, the things which are required to continue filming and working (for instance, batteries, hard drives, memory cards, chargers, adapters, microphones, replacement of damaged lenses, etc.).

 

In addition, we will use the funding we raise to cover the expenses on fuel, medicine and first aid kits, as well as basic needs in emergency situations (one-time payments of up to 4,000 UAH).

 

We are forming a database of international foundations and opportunities which will also provide monetary aid to the Ukrainian film community:

Emergency Fund for Filmmakers in Wake of Ukraine War.

 

We are helping to engage financial support and managing the donations.

 

How to ask for help?

 

Please fill out the form at this link

 

Help is provided primarily to Ukrainian filmmakers who are currently filming actively, participating in the organization of the filming process or the development of filmed footage.

 

The applications are coordinated by the team of the festival’s DOCU/PRO Industry Platform. The verification of the information provided and of the identity of the sender, as well as the processing of the application may take up to two days.

 

The requests are processed on a first-come-first-served basis. Assistance is provided depending on whether funds are available.

 

Should you have any additional questions, please email us at [email protected].
