The Ukrainian Film Club in Estonia was initiated by the Association of Ukrainian Organizations in Estonia with the support of the Embassy of Ukraine in Estonia in February 2023.
Twice a month, we introduce Estonians and Ukrainians to classic and contemporary cinematic art by talented Ukrainian directors. This opportunity is made possible through our close collaboration with various Ukrainian film production companies who have kindly agreed to provide us with films from their production.
The majority of our film screenings take place in the historic Cyprus Cinema (Sõprus) in Tallinn. Additionally, we have already presented 5 films in other Estonian cities: Tartu, Narva, Saku, Kuressaare, Valga, and Kohtla-Järve.
Over the course of the club's existence, we have already screened 13 films.
The multimedia project that takes place in cooperation with Etno TV Eesti is created with the participation of representatives of the Ukrainian diaspora in Estonia and displaced people from Ukraine.
The project aims to unite Ukrainians far from their homeland through their love for singing and folk art.
On Estonia's Independence Day and the anniversary of russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Ukrainians in Estonia recorded a touching song, "Ta lendab mesipuu poole", as a sign of gratitude to the Estonian people for their comprehensive assistance of Ukraine since the beginning of russia's full-scale invasion.
Now it's time for a new video for the Independence Day of Ukraine!
Kalev Naur, an Estonian public figure and board member of the Ukrainian Registered Cossacks of Estonia, conducts these excursions for Ukrainians in Tallinn.
The excursion is an excellent opportunity to learn more about Estonians and understand them better. So far, excursions occurred at the Memorial to the Victims of the Communist Regime and the War Museum in Viimsi. It is fascinating to observe the Estonian people cherish their culture and language through the years, remember history and understand the tragedy of Ukrainians in every detail.
We are extremely grateful to everyone who went on these excursions! Many have shared their positive impressions and eagerly asked about the next gathering.
