Preparing, administrating, running and organizing an Independent Film Festival with the focus we have is a joy to do, but financially very fragile and low on budget. If you are interested in supporting us and the work we do there are a few different ways to do so. Rest assured that we will use the means we obtain to improve the quality of the event and that every contribution matters.
You can donate directly through PayPal using Debit- and Credit card, but you can also become a Festival Member on Patreon which gives you different things in return such as free admittance to the events, online access to the festival programs and more.
If you're looking to get involved you can Volonteer, at the festival event we have lots of different things going on that you can jump in on, but over the course of the year we could easily find something for you to do that makes sense.
Lastly there is of course the opportunity to Sponsor us or different forms of collaborations. Sponsorship can be either through direct means or by different forms of services or products, for example Services/Products given to winning film makers, logistical funds for visiting guests and more.
Collaborations can be a film review blog, artist groups exhibiting paintings during the festival event, or a poetry reading, a music concert etc.
To find out more about the different ways to support us, please visit each section below.
1) Become a Festival Member on Patreon
Patreon allows for a donation system starting at 1$ where the host, in this case we, can offer things in return depending on what level of pledge the donations are set to. It also allows us to build a community of Patrons and set goals to work towards. It's a great platform that gives people who support us the ability to support, follow and enable goals we work towards.
As it is now we offer all our patrons free admittance to our events as well as online streaming access to the festival programs during the festival period, meaning you don't have to be in the same country to see the films, you can sit at home wherever in the world!

Wish to simply donate to us without any sign up or registrations on external platforms? Well, you can! Simply Click the Donation logo below which allows you to donate any amount of your choosing with the use of debit- and credit cards.
If you wish to help out at the Festival we'd be real happy to welcome you! Leading up to and during the physical event there are several different fields in which you can assist - greeting film makers who are arriving to the festival from different places of the world, running technical support during the screenings, promoting the festival in different ways, photographing and many more.
From our side we offer you free admittance to all screenings, Festival T-shirt and goodiebag and make our best so that it's a good time and great experience for you.

4) Sponsor & Partnership
Maybe you'd like to Sponsor the Winning films with Services and/or products? Or you have film review blog and wish to do cross-promotion with us, gaining access to festival films for reviewing?
Or you are involved with a artist group and wish to exhibit paintings during the festival event? Or have a poetry reading, a music concert?
We work with True Independent Films, self produced with a personal voice, from all origins and styles and in the Festival we organize this is what we aim to celebrate and promote.
If you represent a company, organization, film club, blog, magazine, poetry / music / art organization or anything else where you think that a Sponsorship or Partnership would be benefitial for the both us, please email us at web [@] hogakusten-filmfestival.com
