The Odessa International Film Festival launches has crowd-funding campaign to support the National Competition and the organization of the festival. Using one of the leading platforms, Indiegogo, Odessa IFF aims to raise $25,000 before the next edition.

Political instability and economic crisis in Ukraine have jeopardized carrying out the 5th Odessa International Film Festival. Due to the lack of state and private funding, the team of the festival is doing everything to maintain the level of the program and organization. They believe that now as never before the mission of Odessa IFF is to support Ukrainian filmmakers and to bring attention of the international filmmaking community to the changes and threats Ukraine is going through and to hold the National Competition this year. It is the first time Odessa IFF has asked for public support to help sustain the festival in such complicated times for Ukraine.

Fund raising drive has been launched at the international crowd-funding website www.indiegogo.com

The campaign will run for 50 days and the necessary amount is  $25,000. The money will be used to cover technical equipment, accommodation, venues and other organizational expenses. Direct link to the campaign HERE

There has already been demonstrations of solidarity from the international film community with the festivals in Ukraine. Heads of more than 120 film festivals, including those of Cannes, Berlin, Venice and Warsaw signed a letter of appeal last month.
