Odessa International Film Festival is created with the mission to support and to encourage the development of art and industry of cinema on the territory of Ukraine.
The international competition includes films from all over the world, mostly international or national premieres, for the most demanding and passionate viewers. The film selection is focused on so-called “art mainstream”, or the films possessing a refined artistic quality, yet accessible to the broadest possible audience. For Odessa International Film Festival, viewers are the main focus and, from 2012 and on, the festival jury, since the Grand-Prix is awarded by audience. International Jury awards winners in the Best Film, Best Acting and Best Director categories. Other non-competition sections include retrospectives, tributes, collections of the newest films from different countries and festival hits.
National premiere required.
