Best Ukrainian movies are now collected on the one platform in English — Ukrainefilms.com
If you’ve been interested in watching some of the best Ukrainian movies but couldn’t find a way to do it legally, it’s now much easier thanks to the Ukrainefilms.com platform, launched on August 3. It features more than 600 Ukrainian movies, both modern and archival, with links to legal viewing in your country.
The platform was launched by the Irish company usheru in collaboration with the Ukrainian Institute, which is a culture-oriented institution under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine. Their purpose is to popularize Ukrainian movies worldwide, present them more widely to international audiences, and support Ukrainian filmmakers and distributors during the unprovoked full-scale war.
“The war in Ukraine has affected all spheres of Ukrainian life, including the film industry. Our team would like to help a little, so we have joined the website development to promote the Ukrainian creative field on the world stage. By watching Ukrainian films, viewers around the world can honor Ukrainian culture and support film professionals. Watching films has never been more meaningful!”said Oliver Fegan, co-founder and CEO at Usheru.
