The work on the Kyiv International Short Film Festival started in 2011 and it was held in spring 2012 for the first time. Since then, it takes place annually under any circumstances. The festival is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organization. Its main aim is to promote short films.With Squarespace, you can manage multiple sites under a single account associated with an email address. 

The festival is also an occasion for artists to exchange ideas and discuss projects. We want to empower and encourage filmmakers to present their creative work and promote high quality and thematically diverse cinema. The festival organizes the competition programme, presents thematical film blocks and retrospectives, lectures, workshops and educational programmes and tries to integrate Ukrainian short-films directors into the festival circles worldwide.
