The 2022 Venice Film Festival will focus attention on the working conditions for filmmakers since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February.

Venice Film Fest is showing its solidarity with the people of Ukraine and the country’s film industry, by hosting Ukrainian Day at the 79th Venice Festival.

On Thursday, Sept. 8, Ukrainian Day will feature initiatives that focus attention on the plight of Ukrainian artists and filmmakers within the context of Russia’s invasion of the country on February 24 and its ongoing war of aggression there.
