On November 18 at 16:00 in the framework of the film festival "BRUKIVKA" there will be a screening of the best short films of Ukraine 2015-2016 in the almanac from SUK - "OIFF: THE BEST SHORT"!

The Almanac consists of four short films - winners of the Odessa International Film Festival 2015-2016: "Distance" (directed by Kateryna Hornostay), "Men's Work" (directed by Marina Stepanska), "It was raining in Manchester" (directed by Valeria Kalchenko and Antonio Lukic) and "Nail" (directed by Philip Sotnichenko).

The films presented in the almanac won not only at the Odessa Film Festival. "Distance", for example, received the award for best film of the national competition at KIFF "Molodist 2015" and WIZ ART 2015, and director Maryna Stepanskaya received a special award for a powerful ensemble of actors and impressive directing work with actors at KIFF "Molodist 2015".

The OIFF Almanac: Best in Brief is a delicious mix of genres from retro drama to lyrical comedy. Such diversity of the winners of the Odessa Film Festival should inspire the Ukrainian audience to move away from the stamped everyday life and live in their own way.
