Filmmakers for Ukraine, The Location Guide, and EUFCN join forces for fundraiser at Cannes 2022

 

 

The Location Guide, Filmmakers for Ukraine and EUFCN are organising a fundraising campaign at this year’s Cannes Film Festival in support of the Ukrainian filmmaking community. Ukrainian lapel pins will be sold during Cannes Film Festival at events and pavilions, and a minimum donation of EUR10 is required by scanning a QR code.

“I am pleased to join forces with Filmmakers for Ukraine as we wanted to support an initiative that directly assists Ukrainian filmmakers in a swift and transparent manner,” says Clara Le, The Location Guide’s commercial director. “We are reaching out to the international filmmaking community at Cannes and will be aiming to raise as much money as possible during the festival.”

 

Launched by Crew United, Filmmakers for Ukraine is an independent European group of filmmakers that gathered after the start of the war in Ukraine. The group created an online platform - an information hub with different kinds of support (accommodation, legal

assistance, work, education) - for all those affected by the war, paying special

attention to the country’s film community alongside people from socially marginalised groups (LGBTQ+, BPOC, women, children and national minorities). The team is in daily contact with many people who turn to them for help.

 

"Our actual mission is to connect people to make films together,” details Crew United’s managing partner Oliver Zenglein, “but right now it is just more important to bring people together to help those affected by the war.”

 

EUFCN - the European Film Commissioners Network - is a non-profit association that supports the European film industry and culture. The EUFCN aims to develop the exchange of information between its members, improving location research and shooting possibilities while supporting and encouraging the establishment of new Film Commissions.

"The European Film Commissions Network is part of our mission to create and join initiatives to actively support the film industry in Europe,” emphasises EUFCN’s managing director Angelica Cantisani. “In these sad and difficult times, we look to connect even stronger and to raise engagement in the support of Ukrainian filmmakers and Ukraine.”

 

Filmmakers for Ukraine - Fundraising Statement

 

The most important elements of our campaign are:

  • supporting filmmakers
  • helping quickly (for example, sending money by PayPal directly to individual filmmakers in need)
  • avoiding unnecessary formalities, minimalising administrative costs, and maintaining full transparency

 

Our Ukrainian lapel pins will be available at the following Cannes locations:

  • UPC (French Producers Cinema)
  • Le SPI (French Producers TV & Cinema)
  • The American Pavilion
  • Film USA Pavilion
  • Southern Sweden at Members Lounge Long Beach
  • Film France CNC (National Center for Cinema)
  • Croatian Audiovisual Centre at Members Lounge Long Beach
  • CST (Higher Technical Commission for Sound and Images)
  • FOCUS London and makers & shakers Awards mixer
  • German Pavilion
  • Austria Pavilion

More locations will be added soon. If you have a pavilion or an event at Cannes, and would like to get involved in this fundraiser, then please contact: clara.le@thelocationguide.com

In solidarity,

The Location Guide, Filmmakers for Ukraine and EUFCN

About Filmmakers for Ukraine

 

Established by an independent European group of filmmakers, Filmmakers for Ukraine is a platform that offers help for filmmakers and minorities from Ukraine and all people are affected by the war. The group collects and checks important and current information from across Europe and publishes in via their online hub. The creation of Filmmakers For Ukraine was made possible thanks to the support of the German networking platform Crew United, which provided technological support and know-how as well as gigantic networking in the form of more than 42 thousand contacts to the European audiovisual industry. Among the more than 40 volunteers from 15 countries who have been working for 6

weeks on various forms of assistance, there are also Ukrainian filmmakers who are

in exile and those who are still in Ukraine. Further information is available at: https://filmmakers-for-ukraine.com/.

 

 

About EUFCN

 

EUFCN nurtures and supports information exchange between its members, alongside carrying out professional and educational training schemes and generating guidelines for Film Commissions. The organisation was formed when a group of film commissioners who wanted to share information and learn from one another’s experiences met in Malaga in 2004. The group voiced their desire to establish the foundations for this organisation, which is devoted to the business of facilitating film production activity. In Berlin, in 2005, they signed the Berlin Declaration for the constitution of the European Film Commissions Network. The association was officially registered in Brussels in March of 2007 and the first Board of Directors was elected at the first general assembly in Prague in November of 2007.
