Who is behind Filmmakers for Ukraine

Owner and Operator of Filmmakers for Ukraine is Filmmakers for Refugees FfR gemeinnützige UG (haftungsbeschränkt). This website was created by the staff of Crew United Europe – we connect people to make great films together, under fair conditions. In these troubled times we want to use our experience and extensive network to connect people from and within the Ukraine. We invite all institutions, associations and unions of the film industry in Europe to help and support us.

Here are just some of the organisations which have joined us: AG Animationsfilm, Czech Producers’ Association, Deutsche Filmakademie, Directors Guild of Poland, Filmmakers for Future, Filmverband Südwest, FIRST STEPS Award, Polish Film Academy, Polish Producers Alliance, Polish Women in Film Association, Producers Guild of Poland, Queer Media Society, Superbohemians, The Filmmakers Union in Poland, Union of Polish Actors, VdRSD Verband der Requisite und Set Decoration e.V., Wolf PR.
