Programme Coordinator of the Film Festival "Molodist"
The Kyiv International Film Festival “Molodist” has supported the cultural exchange between Ukraine and the world for many years, and already traditionally presents Austrian films. This year we were happy to screen different Austrian films in our programme. Several of them were eventually chosen to the festival’s competitions. Thanks to the support of the Austrian Cultural Forum we were able to invite two Austrian directors Marie Kreutzer and Eva Spreitzhofer to Kyiv, who presented the films “The Ground Beneath My Feet” and “What Have We Done to Deserve This?” The movies reflect social perspective of the Austrian and global society and so are to some extent relevant for Ukraine. The two films are outstanding examples of professional modern cinema. At our festival we always have an exchange of ideas and experiences among all participants, guests and spectators, so broad cultural interaction. This was the first visit to the Ukraine for the two Austrian guests and they had a chance to get to know our culture.
