LSFF #StandswithUkraine

In September 2021, LSFF worked with Ukrainian film platform Takflix on a collaborative project showcasing female filmmakers from Ukraine and the UK, 7+7 (see the project here).

Ukraine's rich cinematic heritage and culture includes filmmakers like Maya Deren, Kira Muratova, Sergei Loznitsa and Oleg Sentsov and hosts film festivals including the Odesa International Film Festival, Wiz-Art Lviv, KISFF, Moldoist Film Festival and many more.

Our friends at Takflix are now calling upon the international film community to #StandWithUkraine, and encouraging cinemas, curators and collectives to organise screenings of Ukrainian films. Practical support, film rights and logistics advice is available from the team.

The Takflix team can help you t0 >>

  • receive all necessary rights and permissions

  • send the full HD screening copy with English subtitles (usually SRT or embedded)

  • consult you on other organisational issues

  • help you make a donation to the relevant initiative of your choice

Follow these simple steps to organise a film screening:

  1. Browse this catalogue of Ukrainian films available with English subtitles

  2. Choose a film or a list of films you would like to screen

  3. Send an e-mail to Takflix team via and tell us the following
