ONile is a non-profit organization by and for exiled journalists, writers and other media professionals.

ONfile was founded in 1996 to improve the situation of journalists and writers who fled to the Netherlands. Since then, filmmakers and other media professionals have also joined our organization. Today our community consists of professionals from 35 different countries. Amongst them are people who have recently arrived in the Netherlands, as well as people who have lived here for a longer time. ONfile contributes to inclusive journalism and an inclusive society by supporting refugee media professionals in their professional integration. ONfile offers its network a safe haven and an (online) place for meet-ups, collaboration and knowledge exchange. ONfile also functions as an intermediary between its writers, (film)makers and speakers and the Dutch media and society. ONfile offers tailor-made support for media professionals and media organisations.
