Dear Asian filmmakers, the Molodist Kyiv International Film Festival (Ukraine) is accepting films until March 1st, 2021. Here you can find more information about their call for entry.

About the festival:
“Over the course of half a century ‘Molodist’ developed from the local, purely professional review of student films of the newly opened Faculty of Cinematography at the Karpenko-Kary University to a major international event that discovers world-class directors.

Nowadays the festival is 50 years old and its goal remains unchanged – to uncover important trends of young cinema development and to help aspiring beginner filmmakers find their way on the world cinema map. As for the new directors, it is worth mentioning a few names of filmmakers who made their debut in Kyiv throughout the history of ‘Molodist’: Tom Tykwer, Francois Ozon, Bruno Dumont, Danny Boyle, Ildiko Enyedi, Jacques Audiard, Xavier Dolan, Stephen Daldry.
