Karlovy Vary cooperating with Odessa festival in showing works in progress

The Karlovy Vary International Film Festival has released a list of the 35 works in progress that are set to feature in the Eastern Promises presentation at this year’s edition. It will include several uncompleted works by Ukrainian directors as part of cooperation with the Odessa International Film Festival, which cannot take place due to Russia’s war on Ukraine.

The projects that are rated most highly by an international jury will receive a total of EUR 125,000 in support, Karlovy Vary’s organisers said. The festival begins on July 1.
