NGO Docudays and the Docudays UA International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival are launching an open call to applications for the 7th Electronic Catalogue of the Ukrainian Documentary, which presents Ukrainian documentaries and documentary projects, production companies, studios, film festivals, distributors, and now also nonfiction film curators.
The updated electronic catalogue will be published online on the docudays.ua website. Just like before, Docudays UA will continue working to promote Ukrainian documentaries and introduce our colleagues at international film festivals to them, to distribute information among our festival partners and film professionals.
The 7th Catalogue of the Ukrainian Documentary will be published in April 2024. It will include films and film projects made in 2023–2025 as well as works-in-progress at the stages of development and production. The Catalogue will also include information about independent production companies, producers, film and TV studios that work in documentary filmmaking, post-production studios, film festivals, distributors, and nonfiction film curators in Ukraine.
Applications for the 7th Electronic Catalogue will be accepted until 24 February 2024.
What kind of films and projects are we looking for?
The Catalogue will feature creative documentary films and projects. We are interested in works in which the authors work creatively with form, experiment, but which are comprehensible for the audience and have an important social message. We are not setting any restrictions in terms of running time, including both short and feature-length films into the Catalogue.
What kind of organisations and curators are we looking for?
Production companies, distribution companies, film festivals and other institutions that work with creative documentaries in Ukraine. We also seek to include information about Ukrainian film curators with expertise in creative documentaries and experience in (pre-)selection, programming, or organising events with Ukrainian nonfiction films in Ukraine and/or abroad.
The results of the selection will be communicated by email to the applicants’ addresses no later than 9 March 2024.
See more details about the selection criteria for the Catalogue in the Regulations.
