EnergaCAMERIMAGE supports Kinoko Film Festival

Oct 13, 2022

Life deals us all dfferent cards to play with, some better, some worse, yet for most of the time it is up to us to decide how and in what way we are to use them.

What happened – and is still happening – this year in Ukraine is a tremendous tragedy that stripped away millions of people of any kind of control. EnergaCAMERIMAGE, as a film festival, cannot change this but, within their capabilities, they would like to at least give a voice to the people behind an impressive artistic event that could not be organised the way it should because of the Russian aggression. EnergaCAMERIMAGE are happy to announce a partnership between EnergaCAMERIMAGE International Film Festival and Ukrainian Film Festival of Art of Cinematography KINOKO.

KINOKO is the first Ukrainian film festival dedicated to the art of cinematography. It was founded in 2018 as an annual student film festival, bringing together young cinematographers from different regions of Ukraine for a two-day screening of student works from various film schools. For 4 years, KINOKO has been growing dynamically to become a prominent platform for creative exchange of ideas and experiences between young cinematographers and professionals. In 2021, the festival included competitional screenings of short and feature films, an exhibition of current film technologies from Ukrainian rental houses (Patriot, Filmotechnic, etc.), and a series of educational and promotional events, including masterclasses from industry-leading figures.

For the 2022 edition, KINOKO has invited representatives from European film schools to participate in the competition, as well as well-known professionals to form an international jury. Due to the Russian war against Ukraine, holding the festival turned out to be impossible. Acknowledging this difficult situation, EnergaCAMERIMAGE Film Festival provided support for KINOKO and decided to give it space to present one feature and one documentary film recognized by the festival in previous years, which stand out due to their unique visual style. We will screen Nariman Aliev’s Homeward (Додому) and Simon Mozgovyi’s Salt from Bonneville (Сіль з Бонневілю).
