Each year, LINOLEUM festival receives around 60 submissions from Ukraine. Unfortunately, not all of them make it to the competition selection. We aim to promote independent Ukrainian and international animation, so we created the NEW FACES programme this year. It will include films by promising Ukrainian authors who are already building the future of our animation nowadays. Different cities, techniques, stories. After the screening, we will talk with the authors about their work, the perspectives of animation in Ukraine and problems they face every day.
Running time 90 min.
