Support Sabzian!

Dear readers,

This year, we celebrate Sabzian's 10th birthday. Founded in 2014 by a group of Belgian filmmakers, Sabzian is today an international film magazine offering in-depth and many-voiced reflection on contemporary film experience and culture, building a bridge between national and international cinephilia, between past and present, between individual and collective imagination. Sabzian publishes texts, interviews, Issues, Collections, translates texts, compiles an Agenda, publishes on film news, organises events and film screenings, issues publications, ... 

All texts and information are accessible free of charge. But even as our output and audience grows, we have to count on you, our most committed readers, to thrive. Although Sabzian is financed by the VAF and the VGC, its current funding level is not sufficient to support further growth. The platform relies on the work of a group of volunteers, mainly filmmakers who put a lot of time into developing and maintaining the website and its content.  

Hence this appeal for financial support for Sabzian’s operations. Every contribution can help us maintain quality and offers means to pay for volunteer work. The existence of a freely accessible platform for quality film criticism helps ensure that a lively film culture can develop in a broader sense. Sabzian is only possible because of readers like you!

On this page you can find an overview of the different options to support our work. Support Sabzian with a one-off free contribution or support Sabzian more structurally and become a Supporter or Patreon with an annual contribution.    

Thank you for your support! 

Many greetings,
