Not Just Your Picture is the result of more than four years of hard work by a small group of people. In 2015, we started without any funding, investing our own money and time because we believed in the importance of telling the story of the Kilani family. In all we just had the help of one private donor, a modest grant from Bertha Foundation, and a co-production with Al Jazeera, which allowed us to complete the film and pay for the post-production work (sound, mixing, colour grading, etc). We completed the film with the generous help of friends and colleagues, who donated their skills without getting paid or with little compensation.
But the technical completion of the film is just one step. We are now facing a bigger challenge – sharing our film with the widest audience possible. For this reason, we are calling upon people who want to help to support us as they can through donations.
With the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19, we are now even facing even more challenges, as it is hard to estimate when festivals will resume their normal activity and when we will be able to hold screenings. We can only prepare ourselves as best as we can by preparing the materials (updating the website content in different languages, editing interviews of experts that we want to update to the website, etc) as well as applying to later festivals (autumn 2020, 2021).
All the money collected will be used for our outreach efforts which include
All our donors will be updated via our newsletter about the progress of the film and the outreach results.
