Ukraine Film Festival in Poland


UKRAINA! Festiwal Filmowy will take place 12-18 November.


The last five years have been the most fruitful time in Ukrainian cinema since independence in 1991. Year by year, Ukrainian cinema is attracting more and more interest from international festivals, film critics, and viewers. In the programme of the four editions of the Ukraine festival! there are screenings of the most important and award-winning Ukrainian films from recent years, meetings with filmmakers, audience plebiscite for the festival’s best film, Ukrainian cuisine workshops, screenings and classes for children, concerts, and exhibitions.

The festival showed how strong is the need to talk, get to know each other, and understand each other. More and more Ukrainians live in Poland; they are our neighbours, colleagues, and colleagues. We want the festival to symbolically build a bridge between Poles and Ukrainians to have an opportunity to talk and have fun together.

Beata Bierońska-Lach, director of the festival
