The Ukrainian Film Week will open with a presentation about representatives of the film industry who, since the start of the full-scale invasion, have been defending Ukraine within the ranks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. On the opening day, viewers will also have the opportunity to watch the war action-drama "Myrnyi-21" directed by Akhtem Seitablayev, who serves in the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
