An American company provides 100 scholarships of €1.000 for filmmakers from Ukraine

The streaming service, together with the House of Europe fund for supporting Ukrainian culture, which is funded by the European Union, is implementing a program to support Ukrainian filmmakers. The scholarship is available to every Ukrainian who has a plan and talent. The fund can help with the implementation of projects in the areas of showreel, equipment costs, travel, courses, team fees, and more. The first online sessions will start in autumn. Ukrainians will learn how to pitch Netflix films at filmmaking sessions and a workshop.
