Hi. I am Sahar Fetrat, journalist and filmmaker based in Kabul, Afghanistan. I have just registred a film production company. I am starting this campign to raise fund to start the company and to purchase production equipment. Through this initiative I am hoping to create a platform and base for the Afghan female filmmakers, photographers and storytellers to create a network, have access and use the facilities of the company to produce quality work with minimum cost.
Your support will mean a lot to us because it will help us not only establish this company but through this company, create opportunities, build networks, create safe space for creatvity, art and storytelling. The funds will be spent on:
Your donation will help in renting an office space for the company, purchasing production equipment and covering the costs such as creating website and paying for 3 univerity students to work in the team for the first few months until we stand on our own feet.
Since I do not live in the US and I do not have US bank account, your fund will go to Fatema Hussaini's account in the US and then it will be transferred to us in Kabul.
