Ukrainian Film Festival involves New Mexico Filmmakers
The first Ukrainian Film Festival initiative, covering contemporary Ukrainian cinema, is sponsored by the New Mexico Film Foundation and the Kyiv National University of Cinema, Theater and Television, in cooperation with the University of New Mexico Department of Film and Digital Arts. Over 20 titles, most having received top awards in international film competitions will be screened.
The festival represents the first formal steps to develop and nurture an intellectual, practical and creative exchange between professional independent film makers, directors and producers in Ukraine and in New Mexico. Exclusive screenings and subsequent master classes are aimed to raise quality levels and product distribution opportunities for both sides.
In addition to screening 8 hours of contemporary Ukrainian made film with Ukrainian content, a live question and answer teleconference session between directors and producers on both sides will be moderated in a separate room by Dirk Norris, Executive Director of the New Mexico Film Foundation
