Back in Berlin from the 9th Odessa International Festival 2018, a young festival with international ambitions dedicated to the support and development of Ukrainian cinema inside the country and on international stage. The festival offers lots of industry events such as Pitching, Work In Progress, Odesa IFF ScripTeast Series projects. Ukrainian filmmakers bring in a lot of creativity and original stories. Looking forward to see some of these projects on the festival circuit.
ODESSA for travelers:
Founded in 1774 by Catherine the Great on the shores of the Black See, Odessa remained an urban pearl embracing international guests with friendliness and style. The eclectic architecture, the extraordinary number of trees adorning every single street in the centre and the mix of patina and really poor condition of the pavements and some buildings give the city a unique flair.
Best city experience: The beautifully renovated Opera House, Potemkin Stairs
Best restaurants: Tavernetta, Dacha, Kumanets
Best Café: Kompot
