Online movie theater featuring Ukrainian movies kicks off in Ukraine
According to Parfan, the Ukrainian audience does not always get access to new Ukrainian movies: movie theaters show them for a very limited period of time, or at an uncomfortable time, while on online services it gets ‘lost in the shadow of commercial content.’ And Takflix is there to fix this.
- It will work as a streaming platform for the new Ukrainian movies. Authors and independent films shot in Ukraine in recent years will be uploaded here.
- Users will have to pay to use the service. For individual movies, it will be possible to buy a movie ticket directly on the website. 50% of the revenue from ticket sales will go to directors and film creators.
- The first movie to be featured on the service for viewing will be the dystopia of Korney Gritsyuk called “2020: The Deserted Country”. The film describes the events of the conditional year 2020 when the entire population left Ukraine and only eight people remained.
- In the future, crowdfunding is planned to be launched on the same website to raise funds for the shooting of Ukrainian films.
