Ukrainian delegation of producers at the International Film Festival in San Sebastian
The Ukrainian Institute, in partnership with the Cannes Film Market program Producers Network | Marché du Film, created an opportunity for Ukrainian producers to participate in the industry section of the International Film Festival in San Sebastian, which was held from 22 to 30 September in Spain.
Festival Internacional de Cine de Donostia-San Sebastián is one of the most significant cultural events in Europe and the leading film forum of the Spanish-speaking world with a powerful industrial program that, in addition to the European one, covers the Latin American film market.
Selected producers received festival accreditations that allowed them to attend all events of the industrial section (Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum and Work in Progress activities). They also had the opportunity to establish warm contacts with leading film industry experts and arrange individual meetings with potential partners. In addition, a meeting with the producers was presented in the “Meet Them” programme.
