Black Pete, Zwarte Piet: The Documentary

Get Involved!

Any film of significance costs lots of money to produce. It entails paying for compensation for the production crew, travel (in this case to a foreign country), food and housing, equipment, archival material, transportation, editing, and many more costs! We are super appreciative of everyone who contributed to our initial fundraising efforts. However, we have lots more money to raise to get this film completely shot, edited and into the public’s hands. Our fundraising efforts are multifold and include crowd funding, applying to grants and identifying private sponsorship.

How You Can Donate:
Please support our independent project as we attempt tell a detailed and nuanced story of the Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet tradition in the Netherlands. We are currently accepting donations of all amounts. Also, we are soliciting private investors who are interested in contributing larger amounts to get the film fully produced and completed.

Other Ways to Support:
Additionally, if there are funding opportunities such as grants that you are aware of, please feel free to forward that information as well. Every dollar (and Euro or Pound or Franc) counts!
