Industry programme

Docudays UA Industry Platform DOCU/PRO is created to promote the Ukrainian documentary films, to develop the Ukrainian film industry, and to establish contacts with international experts in the documentary world. 




UKRAINIAN DOC PREVIEW is a showcase of feature-length documentaries at the stage of production / postproduction. The participants present 15-minute video fragments of upcoming films to international experts. Ukrainian Doc Preview, organized by Docudays UA and the Ukrainian Institute for three years now, will take place online this year on 26 March.

CIVIL PITCH 2.0: for the second time, we have launched a platform for the interaction of documentary filmmakers and public activists to create short documentary films which create solidarity and encourage change. The 12 selected projects will be presented during the festival. As a result of the pitching, 4 winning projects will receive funding for film production and mentorship support from leading international professionals.


DOCU/PRO CLASSES: during the festival, we traditionally offer you to attend masterclasses by leading international and Ukrainian professionals who will share their experience in the processes of project development, distribution and sales. This year, we will focus not only on feature-length films, but also on shorts.



Every year, the Docudays UA team compiles a CATALOG OF THE UKRAINIAN DOCUMENTARY. The English version is distributed at specialized international film markets. The catalog contains information about finished films and projects in progress, as well as contacts of Ukrainian independent producers, film and TV studios, festivals, distributors.
