UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19: Please note that the Artists at Risk Connection (ARC) is not a grantmaking program and is unable to assist artists financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, because we recognize the growing effect that the pandemic is having on artists, we have compiled a growing list of resources for artists affected by COVID-19 and hope that you may find assistance there. Please refer to the "Stories" page to find the list. If you are an artist or cultural practitioner otherwise at risk because of your creative practice, please follow the directions below to contact us.

Please fill out the form to get in touch with us. Submissions are encrypted and ARC understands that your communications are confidential. ARC does not provide direct services, but we will do our best to refer you to organizations that do. You can also find help by exploring our network of resources.

Your message is end-to-end encrypted and will be marked as urgent. You have the option to write this message in Arabic, English, French, Mandarin, Russian or Spanish. Expect a reply within 72 hours.

Guidelines of assistance

Festivals from countries that provide easier access to and more opportunities for funding will pay a EUR 200 annual membership fee. Festivals from countries with lesser financial infrastructure will pay a EUR 100 annual membership fee.


The Human Rights Film Network (HRFN) is a partnership of around 40 independent festivals dedicated to the promotion and support of human rights. Through the network, members exchange ideas on how to best support the cause of human rights through the moving image as well as work to establish more opportunities for showcasing films that focus on human rights.
