The Ukrainian Film Festival hosted by the Healesville Mini Film Festival and Yarra Ranges Film Society (YRFS) was a great success, with each of the films rated highly by the audience.
Association of Ukrainians Victoria (AUV) very grateful for any opportunity that we could get to speak about War in Ukraine.
The films screened at the festival were Home Games, Mr Jones and Olga and were very well received.
“It was certainly one of the best Healesville Mini Film Festivals since its inception in 2015 and the staff of The Memo bent over backwards to help keep the program going on the day” – Keith Wade, the festival organiser, said.
Association of Ukrainians Victoria (AUV) board chair Tatiana Zachariak gave a powerful talk about the situation in Ukraine before the festival began.
“Russia’s been attacking Ukraine for 400 years, it’s history, culture, everything and now it’s children as well,” she said.
The proceeds of the festival will be donated to the Association of Ukrainians in Victoria and we are grateful for the support.
