Odesa International Film Festival Works in Progress Selection 2022

The unprecedented military assault on Ukraine has been accompanied by fundamental limitations to the country’s cultural life. The Karlovy Vary festival expresses its full support for Ukrainian filmmakers and festival organizers, and thus hosted the Works-in-Progress program of the 13th Odesa International Film Festival 2022, which could not be held there because of the war.

Focus of the section

Eight full-length film projects in the final stage of shooting or in post-production produced in Ukraine or in co-production with Ukraine, selected by the OIFF selection committee, will be presented by their creators.

OIFF WIP Selection

The main goal of the Work in progress presentation is to promote Ukrainian films in the world and local markets and to attract the attention of international distributors and also to find the partners for future projects.
The selection committee of the OIFF selects 8 feature film projects in the final stage of shooting or in post-production produced in Ukraine or in co-production with Ukraine. Projects should meet the international quality standards to be demonstrated in frames of the Works in progress presentation. OIFF WIP Selection projects will be presented on July 5th. The presentation of each project will take up to 15 minutes.
