Works In Progress: Ukraine

Stockholm International Film Festival x Odesa International Film Festival presents


This year the Stockholm International Film Festival is proud to collaborate with Odesa International Film Festival, in order to provide a platform for Ukrainian filmmakers to display their on-going film projects to the Nordic audience.

Until October 9th 2022, we’ll be accepting applications from Ukrainian filmmakers from all over the world, at any stage of the production process, to part-take in a special edition of our Ukrainian Works In Progress collaboration. Feature films, full-length documentaries and series - we’d like to see them all!

All submissions will be reviewed by both festivals, and a number of finalists will be chosen together. The creators of the selected works will be invited to present their project to an audience of Nordic and international industry people, during our Industry Days, November 15-17th 2022. Travel and accommodation will be covered by the festival, and those who are unable to attend will be able to present their project digitally. On top of this excellent opportunity to network and reach a wider audience, one project will be granted a prize of 100.000 SEK / € 9393. The winner will be selected by a knowledgeable and experienced jury who will review the selected works.
