The cooperation between AG Kurzfilm and MOLODIST INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL in Kyiv started in 2006 with the first edition in the Long Night of Short Films - Germany. It is now a firmly established part of the festival.
In 2014 the cooperation could be extended by information meetings offered by AG Kurzfilm in the context of the Molodist Talent Workshop 2014. German and Ukrainian filmmakers exchanged their experience regarding festival participation and alternative financing strategies for film projects. The workshops aimed at bringing German an Ukrainian participants into contact but also reinforcing the network of local film professionals.
