Ukraine Solidarity Screening #1 / Freefilmers, Mariupol

Series of benefit events for Ukrainian Filmmakers. We are going live once a day with films made by Ukrainian documentary and/or experimental filmmakers to support them and their families during the Russian War in Ukraine. All of the money gathered will be redirected straight to the filmmakers.
The first event takes place on Wednesday, 02.03, at 19.00 (EET) in support of a film collective from Mariupol “Freefilmers”. They are making films which are as alert and sensitive to the reality as possible and whose main focus is the human life and struggle for equality and freedom.
During the screening one of the collective runners, Sashko Protyah, will try to join us online from Ukraine. However, since the connection in the bomb shelters isn’t available, the live tune-in might not happen.
The exact film program for the event #1 is TBA.
The screening is online at, available from any point in the world.
Tickets (all the money for this event will be donated to the collective):

Updates for the other screenings come daily if not hourly so please keep checking our website or social media.
All the ticket revenue of all the events goes straight to Ukrainian artists/art and culture institutions currently in need of financial support. Every euro counts!

NGO “Freefilmers” is a collective of artists and filmmakers from Mariupol. Focusing on promotion of independent filmmaking in Eastern Ukraine, they are raising the issues of struggle for equality and freedom and providing the platform for experiments beyond the system.

Sashko Protyah, artist and co-founder of the movement, lives and works mostly in Mariupol. His main interest is a topic of quotidian experience and its transformations due to political and technological changes. As the artist claims himself, his films are anthropological explorations, epistemologies of human life.

Кинопоказ солидарности с Украиной #1 / Фрифилмерз, Мариуполь

Благотворительное мероприятие в поддержку украинских кинематографистов.
Раз в день мы будем транслировать фильмы, снятые украинскими режиссерами-документалистами и/или экспериментальными режиссерами, чтобы поддержать их и их семьи во время российской оккупации Украины.
Вся вырученная прибыль будет передана киноколлективу.
Первое мероприятие состоится в среду 02.03 в 19.00 (восточноевропейское время) в поддержку мариупольского киноколлектива «Freefilmers». Они снимают максимально живые и чуткие к реальности фильмы, основное внимание в которых уделяется человеческой жизни и борьбе за равенство и свободу.
В рамках показа мы постараемся соединиться в прямом эфире с одним из участников коллектива Сашко Протыях, который сейчас находится на Украине. Однако, принимая во внимание, что в бомбоубежище отсутствует интернет, есть большая вероятность, что прямой эфир не состоится.
Точная программа показа #1 уточняется.

Показ пройдет в онлайн формате на, просмотр будет работать из любой точки мира.

Билеты (все вырученные средства будут перечислены киноколлективу):
