Continuation of the successful cooperation between EAVE, Netflix and Ukrainian Film Academy to support Ukrainian Filmmakers

press release

Netflix together with a network of institutions continue their partnership supporting Ukrainian filmmakers and the country’s film industry affected by the war. The Ukrainian Film Academy has announced 25 film projects that will receive $10,000 grants each supporting script development, plus tailor-made consultations and mentoring by EAVE with leading industry experts.

For the second time in collaboration with EAVE, the main goal of the Grant Program: "Script Development and Exclusive Online Sessions with EAVE Experts" is to support Ukrainian creators in Ukraine and around the world who have been affected or displaced by the war, aiming to continue and develop their work.

Original feature films with a duration of 70 minutes or more that were in the development stage at the time of application were accepted.

Due to the high level of projects submitted, Netflix has increased the number of grants awarded to 25, each going to a two-person scriptwriter / producer team working on a feature film project.

“Overall, I consider this initiative extremely useful and one of the best examples of practical help to Ukrainian filmmakers during the war. Thank you once again!”
