DOCU/PRO TALK. Ukrainian Film Festivals on Quarantine

09 December 2020

On December 18 at 7 p.m., we invite you to join the online event on docuspace.org.

 

Amid the lockdown, Docudays UA held the first online festival in Ukraine. As the quarantine was relaxed, Molodist held a hybrid version. Later, Wiz-Art, LINOLEUM and the Odesa International Film Festival experimented under the conditions of the audience’s online fatigue and fierce competition for their attention. Each of them in its own, different situation and with its unique experience, surviving and becoming stronger, Ukrainian film festivals have something to say about 2020. At the online meeting, we will share the numbers and results, think about what worked and what didn’t. And we will speak about what the festival audiences can expect next year.

Participants:

  • Viktoria Leshchenko, event moderator, programme director of Docudays UA; 
  • Hlib Rodchenkov, PR director of Molodist KIFF;
  • Yulia Sinkevych, former general producer of the Odesa International Film Festival;
  • Anastasia Verlynska, director of the LINOLEUM Contemporary Animation and Media Art Festival;
  • Olha Raiter, programme director and chief of marketing of Wiz-Art LISFF.
