From 22 November until 6 December, Cambridge Ukrainian Studies and the Ukrainian Institute London welcome audiences to the 2021 Ukrainian Film Festival, Freedom on Screen. Showcasing a dynamic and diverse selection of documentary and feature films, the festival marks 30 years of Ukraine's independent statehood by celebrating a spirit of creative freedom in contemporary Ukrainian cinema. The festival programme features a combination of online and in-person screenings: our digital cinema offers you a curated collection of contemporary Ukrainian films to watch at your leisure anywhere in the UK, while our select in-person screenings and Q&As will take place in cinemas and galleries in London and Cambridge.
The festival is generously supported by the Embassy of Ukraine to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The financial support of Cambridge Ukrainian Studies allows you to watch all films for free online.
