Docudays UA presents the fourth Catalogue of Ukrainian documentary films! Every year, the editions of the catalogue which, we prepare together with the State Film Agency of Ukraine, represents everything that is happening in our documentary filmmaking.
The new catalogue will include films and film projects produced in 2017–2019, as well as projects which are currently at the stage of development and production. In addition, the catalogue will contain information about independent producers, production companies, film and TV studios which engage in documentary production, about the film festivals that work with documentary films, and about the distributors of non-fiction films in Ukraine.
This year’s edition experiments with the format to make it as accessible to the professional film community as possible. “The present catalogue is amazingly ironic. Because a major part of professional communication has moved online, we decided to make an offline edition of the catalogue which resembles Facebook," - comments the Festival’s program coordinator Victoria Leshchenko. "It’s in the pocketbook format. So now our international partners will have no problem taking it home from international festivals, or marking and commenting on the offline posts. The catalogue is also available online and organized using the principle of cross-linking”.

The first time, the Catalogue was presented at the 22nd International Documentary Film Festival Sheffield Doc/Fest, where a presentation of contemporary Ukrainian documentary filmmaking Keep Calm and Shoot in Ukraine was held. In the three years since the Catalogue was launched, the Docudays UA team has presented it about ten times at the largest film festival forums: the British Sheffield Doc/Fest, the German DOK Leipzig, the festival of documentary films in Jihlava and Visions du Réel in Nyon.
This year, the new Catalogue’s first stop will be at the Leipzig festival. Follow the updates on our website!
The catalogue is published with the support of the Ukrainian State Film Agency and Embassy of Sweden in Ukraine.
