Glory to Ukrainian Filmmakers!

Starting from 9 May, a selection of Ukrainian films will reach the viewers for free, in order to raise support for filmmakers.

On Europe Day on 9 May, the film programme Glory to Ukrainian Filmmakers! will be launched at Artis Cinema.

The film programme will be opened at 17:30 on 9 May at Artic Cinema with the film “Donbass” (Sergei Loznitsa, 2018), after a discussion on the topics of free media and Russian propaganda. Guests include the media expert Andres Jõesaar, the Head of the European Commission’s Representation in Estonia Vivian Loonela and the Minister of Culture Tiit Terik.

A selection of different Ukrainian films will be screened in the Tallinn cinemas Artis and Sõprus from 9 to 12 May. Starting from 9 May, you can also watch the films in PÖFF’s web cinema and starting from the end of May, you can watch them on ETV. The film programme is free of charge for everyone, but we are inviting you to donate to Ukraine.

“Glory to Ukrainian Filmmakers” is an excellent opportunity to take a closer look at the rich Ukrainian culture and cinematography which deserves a much broader coverage on the backdrop of the current war news.
