Netflix, in collaboration with a network of various institutions, continues to support Ukrainian filmmakers and the country's film industry, which has been significantly impacted by the ongoing war. The Ukrainian Film Academy recently announced that 25 film projects would each receive a $10,000 grant for script development. These grants are supplemented with tailored consultations and mentoring from leading industry experts through EAVE.

This marks the second collaboration between Netflix and EAVE. The grant programme, titled "Script Development and Exclusive Online Sessions with EAVE Experts", aims to support Ukrainian creators both within the country and abroad who have been affected or displaced by the conflict. The scheme's goal is to enable these creators to continue and develop their work.

The programme accepted original feature-film projects of at least 70 minutes in duration that were at the development stage at the time of application. Due to the high calibre of submissions, Netflix increased the number of grants to 25, each awarded to a two-person scriptwriter/producer team working on a feature-film project.

Pavlo Cherepin, a producer and recipient of the 2023 grant programme, praised the initiative: “Overall, I consider it extremely useful and one of the best examples of practical help given to Ukrainian filmmakers during the war. Thank you once again!”

Additionally, the Ukrainian Film Academy will translate all scripts into English at the conclusion of the programme. Exclusive online sessions with EAVE experts will be held specifically for the grant recipients. These sessions will include group discussions on major industry trends and individual sessions focusing on script and project development, including strategies for financing and marketing.

This initiative is part of the broader support for the Ukrainian film and TV industry provided by the Netflix Fund for Creative Equity. Over the past two years, 200 industry professionals have received creative stipends, and more than 650 Ukrainian filmmakers, scriptwriters, producers and other creatives have benefited from education and mentoring programmes. With Netflix's support, the Ukrainian Film Academy has also facilitated script-development grants for 48 projects and helped provide financial assistance for post-production on ten advanced film projects.
