Special online event on Ukraine


We are standing with Ukraine!

Many Ukrainian, as well as Russian filmmakers, presented their documentary films at Ji.hlava over the years. We are committed to continuing to fight disinformation and providing the floor for free and unbiased discussion. While the Russian aggression must be absolutely rejected, we warn against Russophobic stands – the people in Russia and the Russian government are not the same.   Ji.hlava IDFF organizing team, February 24, 2022
