Antonio Lukich is one of the four Ukrainian directors visiting Göteborg Film Festival on a residency stay for three months. Now he temporarily leaves the Swedish west coast to visit the film festivals in Venice and Toronto, where his second feature film, the black comedy Luxembourg, Luxembourg will have its world premiere.

In Venice the film competes in the official festival section Orrizonti and in Toronto it will be screened in the Contemporary World Cinema section. In addition to the residency, where Lukich is writing on a new script, Göteborg Film Fund is supporting the promotion activities for the film, within a cooperation with the Ukrainian Institute and their programme proMOTION. The film is produced by Vladimir Yatsenko and Anna Yatsenko for Forefilms. Additional projects supported within the programme are Felix and me, directed by Iryna Tsilyk, premiering during the autumn, and Pamfir, directed by Dmytro Sukholytkyy-Sobchuk, which premiered in Director’s Fortnight at the Cannes festival in May and previously was supported with post-production support from Göteborg Film Fund.

– We are of course very happy to accompany one of our residency guests to Venice and Toronto and celebrate his, and Ukrainian, film at the same time as it is a kick-off for new parts of our programme for Ukraine. With which we have the goal to keep the industry within Ukraine active as much as possible, under these really tough circumstances, says Camilla Larsson, Fund Manager at Göteborg Film Festival.
