The nationwide Ukrainian network of film club screenings - Arthouse Club – is a project tasked with developing the film club movement in Ukraine and promote the cinematic arts. Our team at Arthouse Traffic has developed the interactive website kinoklub.org.ua
that was launched in October 2018 and is now accessed by users throughout the country. They can organise screenings in their location: to access to the film data base, to create a festival programme or choose from another, existing festival; to download promotional materials and talk about and promote local events on the site and via social networks
We began to develop the idea of bringing film clubs together into an established network in 2016. With the Culture Bridges grant we were able to update the website and start promoting the development of the film club movement in Ukraine. We've been able to bring together around 200 new film clubs - some that were already in existence and others whose formation was prompted by the launch of the platform.
