 “Netflix” Streams Ukrainian Film “Pamfir”

The "Best Ukrainian Film 2022" will be available for viewing from June 

The Ukrainian film, which was released only in late March, has already become one of the most popular in the country. Almost 80.000 people have already watched the movie. The box office grossed $95.900.

Pamfir belongs to Ukrainian director Dmytro Sukholytkyi-Sobchuk. Teams from different countries worked on the Ukrainian script. Pamfir filmed coproductions in Ukraine and France, Poland, and Chile: Ukrainian companies BOSONFILM and Mainstream pictures, French corporation Les Films D'Ici, Polish MADANTS, Chiles' Quijote. The film tells about life in the Western part of Ukraine. The film deals simultaneously with the theme of the traditions of Ukraine – the events take place on the eve of the traditional carnival of Malanka and also considers corruption, smuggling, and other realities of life of people who live in border regions.

The idea for the film first appeared in 2019. Then Pamfir won the contest for the state prize for cinema and received the support of the state. The project was implemented with the support of the Ukrainian cultural foundation. Also, the director Dmytro Sukholytkyi-Sobchuk had support in Cannes – there, he wrote the script in the residence of the Cannes International Film Festival Cinefondation Residence. TorinoFilmLab and Midpoint Intensive have also joined the project. In 2022, Pamfir became the best Ukrainian film.
