The entrance is on a donation basis with 100% of the proceeds being given to the Kurdish Red Crescent, to assist individuals and families who are in need of medical support and shelter after the Turkish invasion of Rojava and its continued occupation and aggression.

If you cannot make it to the screening and would like to support Rojava, we highly encourage you to make a donation of any kind.
