On Sunday 16 June, Ukraine Day offers free film screenings from Ukraine including Hutsulka Ksenya, a charming family friendly romance set in the beautiful Carpathian Mountains in 1939.

Set during the brutal rule of the Polish nobility, Dovbush tells the story of two brothers who find themselves outlaws in search of revenge for the murder of their parents. However, the brothers become enemies of each other: one yearns money, the other justice.

The final film of the day is 20 Days in Mariupol plus panel discussion. A hugely important film, both in terms of the achievement in filmmaking (for which it swept international awards) and a testament for the power of journalism in a war zone.

Io Capitano is a film about two Senegalese teenagers, Seydou and Moussa, who leave Dakar for Italy. Highly emotional and honestly felt, this is a story of epic scale, but one which doesn’t lose sight of the individual human stakes of the migrant crisis. Screening from 17-20 June, + intro from Italian Film Festival on 17 June, 6.10pm.

SAFAR Film Festival is the largest festival in the UK dedicated to cinema from the Arab world. The 2024 edition brings together over 50 films from 15 countries and offers a unique space for audiences to explore and celebrate the diversity of Arab cinema. The ninth edition of the festival runs from 18-30 June here and across the UK and features films from Palestine, Sudan and Yemen.
