The “UNIAN press-center” accommodated the press conference devoted to the start of the short film competition named is “Ukraine: the way to peace". Philanthropist Igor Iankovskyi, along with the head of the organizing committee of the competition, the young director Nikon Romanchenko, told attendees about the contest.

The total prize fund will amount to 270 thousand UAH. In 2016 the professional jury will announce all the winners. The best films among submitted for the competition will be compiled into a short program. The organizers are planning to show the finalists’ films in all regions of Ukraine, as well as to hold special events with a demonstration of short films featuring young directors abroad. Igor Iankovskyi Foundation has a good experience of conducting the Days of Ukrainian cinema in Europe, which intends to be used in promoting the works of young Ukrainian producers - participants of the competition of short films "Ukraine: way to peace” in the West.

According to patron of the Foundation, Igor Iankovskyi, he initiated the Ukrainian short films competition "Ukraine: way to peace" in order to encourage young filmmakers to express their Ukrainian citizenship and unlock their creative potential.

"Ukraine has a lot of talented young filmmakers who simply need to be allowed to express themselves. By initiating this competition with a simple and clear theme close to all Ukrainians, I encourage young directors to speak on the topic of building a peaceful life in Ukraine. Over the past two years we have seen so many movies and stories about the war that society has matured for a strong demand for positive outlook on the subject. Indeed, despite the bloody events in Eastern Ukraine, despite the victories and losses, sacrifices and heroism of soldiers, life continues. People raise children, do business, and try to organize their lives. We know the stories of internally displaced persons who have managed to find themselves in unfamiliar regions of Ukraine, found the strength to start their lives anew. We would like to envisage these threads that interconnect East and West, North and South of Ukraine. And I want to make a platform which will allow the young filmmakers to express their civil position, shoot films about the new and creative Ukraine”, - noted Igor Iankovskyi.

The theme of Ukrainian short films contest "Ukraine: the way to peace" is dedicated to universal human values and is particularly relevant for Ukraine these days. This includes human relationships and the desire to live, to create, to build – which are the simple life stories, a look into the future of Ukraine. The organizers of the contest encouraged young filmmakers to express their citizenship in their works, to outline the ways of development for the new Ukraine and to create a peaceful image of Ukraine.

Igor Iankovskyi invited young Ukrainian filmmakers who have already approved themselves to be partners of the competition. Chairman of the Organizing Committee appointed Nikon Romanchenko, the winner of the National Competition Film Festival "Molodist", who in his turn engaged young filmmakers of the NGO “Modern Ukrainian cinema” into cooperation. According to Nikon Romanchenko, Ukrainian directors curiously accepted the offer to take part in the competition of short films "Ukraine: way to peace." For them it’s a good incentive to express them, to formulate their attitude to the changing realities, to offer the audience a view towards building a new Ukraine.

Ukrainian short films competition "Ukraine: way to peace" will take place for six month. All the interested residents of Ukraine aged from 16 to 30 years old; with experience in short films shooting are eligible to take part in this contest. The competition is opened to films that were shot in the period from 1 January 2014 to date.
