Odessa Film Festival to focus on Ukraine features

Ukrainian films will come under the spotlight at the 4th edition of the Odessa Film Festival, which runs July 12-20.

A total of 19 new Ukrainian projects, at various stages of production, will be presented during the festival in partnership with the Ukrainian State Film Agency including Kira Muratova’s Eternal Homecoming and the first Ukranian 3D horror movie Synevir.

10 Ukrainian projects will compete for a cash prize of $3,250 (€2,500) as part of the OIFF pitching session. These will include Stepne, the debut feature of Marina Vroda who won the Short Film Palme d’Or in Cannes, and crime comedy Pawnshop directed by Lubomyr Levitskiy.

Meanwhile as part of the Work-in-Progress section, clips from nine Ukrainian films or co-productions at the post production stage will be presented.
