More Info

My name is Saba and I am a student of film at the DFFB school in Berlin. It has been a lifelong dream to pursue my passion for screenwriting and when the opportunity arose to attend one of Europe's most prestigious film programs I couldn't have been happier. Not only is this chance at higher education a privilege for me to follow my dreams, but it is a mode of freedom and security.

I come from Iran, where it is becoming increasingly unsafe to live, especially for women. As political chaos continues to erupt, and more and more friends and family members are being thrown into prison, executed, or murdered, I am left using all my financial resources to support them. This leaves me very little money to survive on my own in Germany, let alone pay for school. Without this program, and therefore the right to a student visa, I could face being sent back to Iran.

I am doing everything in my power to support my family and my dreams in the process. However, it has become clear that I need to rely on external help in the short term. My goal is to find part time work next semester to balance my living expenses, but until then I am at a loss. I am grateful for any contribution you can make to support me through this time and can assure you that every cent counts. Thank you for your help and support during this time.
