A different take on tradition. As every year, Akkord Film recently held its annual Oscar betting game, where the staff members bet on who wins the Academy Awards. This time however, for every Euro invested, the company donated ten Euros to the initiative „Support Filmmakers Ukraine“, rounding it up to a four-digit amount.
The initiative intends to help Ukrainian filmmakers who risk their lives under extreme conditions filming independent footage of the war. Involved are the Deutsche Filmakademie, Produzentenallianz, Crew United and many more. The donations are invested in protective wear and film equipment which are urgently needed for working in the warzone.
