A dialogue between the cinematic cultures
Kyiv International Short Film Festival
The 8th Kyiv International Short Film Festival was held from April 17 to April 21, 2019. We are very happy that we have been supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum for four years in a row. With the support of the Austrian Cultural Forum, a number of artists and representatives of Austrian film industry and film festivals were able to visit Ukraine and our festival, and a dozen short films were featured within short film festivals throughout Ukraine.
The systematic and consequent cooperation in the industry of short films between Ukraine and Austria would not be possible without this support. This cooperation already bears fruits. Ukrainian films are regularly shown at Austrian film festivals, while Ukrainian spectators can watch the best film selections and single movies from Austria. Already in May we will present a selection of relevant short films at the festival Vienna Shorts, and the director of this festival, Doris Bauer, visited the Kyiv International Short Film Festival as an expert just last month.
By joint efforts, we will continue to develop a dialogue between the two cinematic cultures.
