WHY YOUR EURO IS PRICELESS
If you can see it, you can be it
Worlds shaped by film provide a gateway to discover and love your unique self. IXY is born from the need for a colourful representation of different shades of love, gender & sexuality in everyday reality. As sometimes, you need to see who you can be in order to be who you are.
One million of us can replace one millionaire
In order to realise IXY’s vision and make the broad spectrum of life-changing LGBTQIA+ films accessible worldwide, money is needed. To achieve this, IXY believes in the power of the crowd. This way, we are free to make decisions with the greatest positive impact and social value for humanity.
Why the money is needed and how it's spent
Four years ago I, Josje Helmond, started working on IXY. In June 2022 I managed, with the help of many others, to realise the launch of IXY. What a milestone! But now we have arrived at the point that, to be able to make the envisioned impact, it’s time to get the finances in order. Why does IXY need money?
To get back to zero
to pay off the loans needed to start IXY
to pay salaries to the people that so thoughtfully agreed to delay their salaries
to pay outstanding invoices
to start paying people for their work who so far have worked pro-bono
To be able to stay in existence
to pay a core team a monthly salary
to cover the monthly costs: platform costs, data use costs, costs for an office, software costs, lab costs & film transfer costs etc.
To be able to expand our film selection
more diverse films with underrepresented stories & characters
more films on the intersection of gender, sexuality and race, reflecting the racial diversity of the world.
more films with wide-ranging international content, to tell stories from all corners of the world
to team up with independent and starting film-makers
a smart tv and mobile app, to make the stories on IXY easily accessible
To be able to expand internationally
Currently, IXY is available in the Benelux and this is great. However, next to this IXY should be available in many more countries, especially where being your colourful self is hardly possible because it’s forbidden or criminalised. Our mission is to go global!
