DocuDays Ukraine Online

Positive message from the Kiev festival, DocuDays, as always with clever thoughts and energy:  

This year, due to the quarantine, we have decided to hold the 17th Docudays UA online. On 24 April through 3 May, we will present over 45 live streams of RIGHTS NOW! human rights events and DOCU/CLASS Documentary Workshop events. Every evening throughout the festival, a new episode of The Village by Claire Simon will be presented. In addition, over 50 films will be available free of charge on our DOCU/SPACE platform until 10 May. This decision is full of challenges and experiments for us: thus, Docudays UA will become the first Ukrainian film festival to be held online. Not only Kyiv residents, but the whole Ukraine will have a chance to visit the festival.

We want to support our audience, so all festival screenings and online broadcasts will be free of charge. If you want to, you can pay any amount you wish for watching a film.

The Docudays UA team thanks all its donors and partners, directors of the festival films for their solidarity and contributions to implementing this ambitious decision. Thus, during the quarantine, we offer you to have a new, absolutely untrivial experience of attending the International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival online. Let’s stay home to watch and discuss documentary films together.

Viktoriia Leshchenko, Docudays UA Programme Director: 

“The decision to hold the online festival already in late April was not easy for us. Of course, no kind of virtual event can replace a physical one. And we really understand the filmmakers’ feelings about the fact that their films are not shown on cinema screens. We are extremely grateful for all the directors’ and partners’ favorable attitude to this idea in this troubled time. This festival is our act of solidarity with the global cultural community and a way to support our audience during the crisis. It is an instrument of personal reboot and communication with the world under the conditions of global isolation.”

… In a week, we will publish a detailed programme and schedule of festival online broadcasts. The information about festival passes and industry accreditations will be sent to their holders’ emails.
