Ukrainian Films Now – Cannes 2022 selection


Film funds from France, Germany and Italy are among 12 organisations uniting for Ukrainian Films Now, a fundraising and networking event at Cannes in support of Ukrainian films in post-production

The event will take place as part of the Marche du Film’s official programme, with the nine Ukrainian works-in-progress presented on May 22 to an audience of industry professionals.

The aim is to connect the Ukrainian film teams with potential European producers and partners. A cash prize of €30,000 ($31,700) will be awarded to one of the nine films, chosen by a jury of filmmakers who have titles in Cannes: Clément Cogitore (Sons Of Ramses, Critics’ Week), Elena López Riera (The Water, Directors’ Fortnight), and Agnieszka Smoczyńska (The Silent Twins, Un Certain Regard).
