What are your plans for the future? Public discussion about the strategy for the development of the film industry

“What are your plans for the future?” is a question with which journalists like to conclude their interviews. Recently it has gained an existential dimension.


The planning horizon of the future has shrunk to a few weeks, and often just a few days or hours. Due to the full-scale war and the peculiarities of the government’s cultural policy, the future of Ukrainian filmmaking as a field for experimentation, reflection and conversation is very uncertain.

To continue the conversation around the main theme of this year’s film festival, we will talk about the outlines of our shared future in cinema, the future we desire and predict, and about what we can all do together today.
