This year's BERLINALE SHORTS line-up also includes a film by Nadiia Parfan. The Cottbus Film Festival has also worked a lot with the Ukrainian director in the past.
Director Nadia Parfan, together with her partner Ilia Gladshtein, launched the now defunct conceptual film art festival "'86' - Festival of Film and Urbanism" in Slavutych and produced four seasons of the short film painting guide "My Street Films Ukraine" in 2014 and 2018.
