Kyiv International Short Film Festival, or simply KISFF, is the biggest regular short film event in Ukraine.
Every year at the end of April Kyiv International Short Film Festival presents topical short films from all over the world and classics of cinema while introducing their authors and representatives of world film industry.
We believe that you will find something interesting among 250 films in dozens of sections.
One of the main goals of KISFF is to find “new” films and something new in cinema; to discover new thoughts on artistic merit and Ukrainian films of both the past and the present.
Besides traditional competitive and non-competitive sections there will be dozens of curatorial selections, showcases from leading film schools, famous film festivals, retrospective sections on Ukrainian films, special programs for kids and teens. Also, we will definitely pay attention to experimental and radical films.
Our main location is picture theatre “Ukraina”. Some of the events will take place at various locations in Kyiv.
Freedom and independence, topicality and responsiveness, ability to bring the craziest artistic ideas to life are a few things that make short films so attractive to us. You won’t see all of that in refined and processed though all levels of business production films listed in schedules of movie theaters. From Zimbabwe to Iceland, from Taiwan to Chile – contestants from all continents are introduced in our program. Different fates, stories, methods and forms are shown on a big screen in the heart of Kyiv. Probably this is why we dedicate so much time and effort to choose from thousands of films. We select just a few hundreds to present them to you every year!
Don’t miss this opportunity! Because you might not get another chance to watch all these films again!
