We want to help artists connect with art institutions, funding agencies and the media, among others. We do so by investing our own resources: both financial and through intensive project support. Together we formulate a clear output, production schedule, and seek to strategically position the project to maximise the project’s impact.
Forhanna is based on the principle of reciprocity. All our collaborations start from the mutual understanding that we all share in each other’s successes. This means that revenues derived from a project supported by Forhanna, will be partly reinvested in new projects. This allows us to keep supporting talented makers in the future.

Donating to Forhanna
Forhanna is a not-for-profit production house that supports documentary photography and film makers. We spend time and money on every adopted project. All of our collaborations are built on the principle of reciprocity, allowing both Forhanna and the artists to share in the revenues of success-full projects. We use these revenues to keep supporting artists in the future.
Our activities, however, will always cost more than they will earn. We are therefore dependant on external funding and donations to make ends meet. You can help us in our mission.
By donating to Forhanna, you allow us to keep on carefully selecting talented and socially committed artists, and to bring their works to a wider audience.
Tax deductible donations
Donations to Forhanna are tax-deductible under Dutch tax law. That’s because the Dutch tax authorities have recognised the Forhanna Foundation as a Public Benefit Organisation, or ‘ANBI’ (in Dutch: Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling).
In general, ANBI organisations focus at least 90 percent of their efforts on the general good and have a transparent bookkeeping. Here you can find more information about Public Benefit Organisations under Dutch tax law.
