⚡ Support our work

In Southeast Asia, there are many, many films centering women and queer folk. Often, these are made independently by fiercely passionate filmmakers who operate without the financial backing of production companies or guarantees of commercial distribution. Our film club focuses on these stories and their storytellers.

If you like what we do, please consider making a contribution via Ko-fi. Your contributions will go directly to

  1. paying featured filmmakers/speakers for their time and access to their films,

  2. providing small honorariums for the four co-organizers' time in programming and organising screenings and Q&As, and

  3. the costs of keeping the lights on at our film club.
