Contemporary Ukrainian Cinema is a company that was originally founded in 2015 as a filmmakers collective and the only platform in Ukraine to promote young Ukrainian cinema.
The first 7 films productions by CUC were made independently from state financing. As an LLC, CUC was founded in 2017. After traveling widely at festivals and winning a number of awards, the company moved on to more ambitious projects financed by Ukrainian Culture Foundation and Ukrainian State Film Agency. To this date, CUC has produced 13 short films, 2 feature documentaries and 1 fiction feature.
The company continues to promote and screen films by young Ukrainian filmmakers. We have held around 300 screenings, a film festival for first films Kinoohlyad and over 200 master-classes by new Ukrainian filmmakers.
CUC has a following in Ukraine and abroad. CUC’s films have been screened at various festivals, including Sheffield Doc IFF, Odesa IFF, Molodist IFF, Clermont-Ferrand, Palm Springs ISFF, ISFF Sleepwalkers and Docudays. Our projects won over 100 awards in Ukraine and around the world.
