    Our values
    We have defined our core values as innovation, creativity, competence and tolerance.
    What these concepts mean to us:
    Innovativeness is the ability to introduce innovations that increase the efficiency of the film process and the quality of film content;Creativity - creative abilities that lead to the creation of fundamentally new ideas;Competence - having the knowledge and experience necessary to fulfill our mission;Tolerance - respect for other views, customs, habits, which is a sign of an open-minded idea current that is not afraid of comparison with other points of view.
    In our opinion, all these qualities are important for introducing innovations into the Ukrainian film industry and for transforming the existing society.
    Innovations in the film industry are new technologies and ways of organizing the production, distribution and screening of films. It is important to create conditions for the introduction of advanced technologies into the Ukrainian film industry.
    Entering the international film market is only possible if the world needs quality films from Ukraine.
    The transformation of society is a process of acquiring new qualities that meet the requirements of the future. Cinema, as the most popular and accessible form of mass art, helps to shape new qualities in society that are necessary for life in the future.
