Down Under Berlin would not be possible without the amazing support of our partners and the passion of our team, which is made up entirely of volunteers. But just as importantly, Down Under Berlin relies on the ongoing support of its audience.

By supporting us financially you can help us obtain screening rights for more amazing films from Down Under and thereby expand our platform for Australian and New Zealand filmmakers. Our team’s dedication to bringing these movies to Berlin would not be possible without its audience sharing the same passion for cinema, and the same hunger and curiosity for talents from the other side of the world.

With your donation, you support our festival and the work we do in bringing innovative, original, and often unseen films to Berlin. The films we showcase often benefit from a German, European, or international premiere status here at the festival, making you their first audience in this part of the world. Many of the filmmakers we showcase go on to become successful internationally, after being part of Down Under Berlin.

Down Under Berlin is run by the non-profit registered association Down Under Berlin e.V. which means that your financial donation can be claimed on your tax return in Germany. The festival will provide you with a receipt for your donation. All we need is your postal address.
