Help us stay dangerous.

FODI is only made possible thanks to the support of our donors and donations. Your support will enable us to keep FODI going.

If you have any questions about contributing, please contact us

We acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation - the custodians of the country in which we meet - and acknowledge their Elders, past and present.

A festival of international significance is expensive to deliver. Our non-profit, independence is both an asset and a challenge. FODI could not be produced without the generosity of our supporters and donors. we welcome and continue to seek long-term funding. We want to work with partners who seek to differentiate themselves from the pack. Who are brave. Who are bold. Who think about the future and who want to play a role in shaping it. Is this you?
