Ukrainian documentary projects showcases and Delegations of Ukrainian documentaries at international festivals
In 2019, within the framework of the delegation «Ukraine: Here We Go!»,10 documentary projects from Ukraine visited the largest platform for documentary films - a film festival in Amsterdam. Delegation members were producers and directors who work on first and second full-length films. They joined the festival industry events, visited the forum market and got advice from international experts. This visit was made possible through cooperation between Docudays UA, Ukrainian State Film Agency and the Ukrainian Institute.
