Legacies

Curious how the Hubert Bals Fund supports filmmakers in creating their films? Want to experience how we take school children on trips to other parts of the globe? Or do you have specific ideas about what the festival can mean?  A legacy or donation has a major impact on the festival’s efficacy and by working together, we can achieve your ambitions.

Every year I enjoy the party that IFFR is. It’s more important to me to support something that I enjoy than an institution working to cure an ailment that will have killed me by then.  I support the festival through the Tiger Film Mecenaat, which means I am already very involved and I hope my legacy will contribute to future generations being able to enjoy the festival.
Alex Mekking, highly valued friend of the festival

Legacies can be made in the following ways:

  • You can include IFFR or the Hubert Bals Fund in your testament as an heir so you can leave (part of) your inheritance to IFFR or the HBF.

  • You can include a legacy to IFFR or the HBF in your testament for a sum you pre-ordain or a proportion of your inheritance.

  • You can opt to donate during your lifetime or found a Fonds op Naam [named fund]. The latter will be given a name of your choice and contributes to an objective you choose. IFFR ensures that your objectives are achieved and takes care of the organisation and administration. Funds of this nature start from €50,000 and up. It is also possible to link your legacy to your fund.

Whichever form you opt for, the donation or legacy will fully benefit the festival. Due to the IFFR’s ANBI status no inheritance or gift tax will be levied.
