Four films by the young pair of filmmakers, winners of the Short Film Golden Bear in 2014, will be presented in a retrospective at the Kyiv International Short Film Festival.
Supported in particular by the Institut Français, the Kyiv International Short Film Festival's 7th edition will take place from April 25 through 29. This year, Caroline Poggi and Jonathan Vinel will be the guests of honor at the young Ukranian event. Awarded the Short Film Golden Bear at the Berlinale in 2014 for their first joint production As Long as Shotguns Remain(photo), the French duo has since worked together on three projects, Our Legacy (Berlinale, 2016), After School Knife Fight (La Semaine de la Critique - Cannes, 2017), and Martin Cries (Berlinale, 2017), which have all been selected at leading international festivals. The films will be spotlighted with a retrospective – with support from UniFrance – and the filmmakers will travel to Kiev to encounter Ukranian moviegoers. This panorama is taking place at the same moment that their debut feature, Jessica Forever (currently in post-production) is eagerly awaited.
At least 10 other French titles will be selected at KISFF. The full program will be announced here.
