What is Odessa Film Festival All About?

Odessa International Film Festival was established in 2010 with a mission to bring high quality films from all over the world to the Ukrainian audience as well as to encourage the development of film industry in Ukraine and to restore its cinematic tradition.

Today, 4 years later, Odessa IFF is a large-scare, non-profit, audience-oriented project that has outgrown the level of national event and became the face of Ukraine in the eyes of the world film community. 

The festival’s lineup consists of competition programs - International and National, out of competition screenings of gala premieres, international festival hits, personal and thematic retrospectives, special open-air screenings as well as Film Industry Office, Film Market and Summer Film School. 

What the Festival Has Accomplished? 

For the past four years Odessa Film Festival was attended by over 300 000 viewers and 3 000 professionals from 40 countries. Over 400 movies were screened. About 70 000 people watched our films at the free open-air screenings. More than 600 students listened to master classes by famous directors, actors, producers, film critics and other film industry experts at the Summer Film School. 

Festival strives to promote young Ukrainian filmmakers and become a launching pad for their international recognition. That is why in 2012 we established the National Competition that has proven to be effective in boosting Ukrainian film Industry. 2 year ago there were hardly 10 film applications, this year more than 150 filmmakers have already submitted their films. They will compete for 3 awards: Best feature, Best Short and Best Acting.

Moreover, professional section of the Festival - Film Industry Office - attracted the attention of international producers, agents and selectors of international film festivals to the works of the Ukrainian filmmakers. Three Ukrainian film projects received cash awards as the winners of the annual Pitching session.

The Impact

Besides being a entertainment event, that brings joy and cultural development to the audience, Odessa Film Festival is  an effective platform for dialogue between different cultures and collaboration.  

We believe that cinema is a powerful tool of a civil protest, it unites people of all nationalities and is able to make a positive change as well as to raise the spirit of nation. That’s why the Odessa IFF should take place in Ukraine this year!

What We Need

2014 is going to be tough year for Ukraine. Due to the difficult political and economical situation the Festival was left without state funding as well as lost a great amount of sponsor’s investments. Festival passes and tickets sale accounts only for 2% of the festival’s budget. 

The team of Odessa Film Festival will do everything possible to support Ukrainian cinema by holding the National Competition this year. But we need your support to cover technical  equipement, accommodation, venues and other organisational expenses.
