Students’ Council under MIP: Film Djakuyu Presented at Eight Universities All Over Ukraine
On 18 May 2018, the Students’ Council under the Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine presented the short film Djakuyu at eight Ukrainian universities on the occasion of the Europe Day in Ukraine, which is to be marked on May 19th.
In particular, the film about Ukraine was watched by students and lecturers from National Pedagogical Dragomanov University, Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University, the Lviv State University of the Interior of Ukraine, Cherkasy State Technological University, the National University of Ostroh Academy, Volodymyr Dahl East Ukrainian National University, Uman State Pedagogical University, and Donbas State Technological University.
The Adviser to the Minister of Information Policy of Ukraine on International Communication and the Students’ Council coordinator, Maryna Sobotiuk, opened the screening at Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University within the framework of the UN Model event, where students modelled a session of the UN General Assembly.
Ms Sobotiuk called students for joining in the Students’ Council under MIP. “Ukraine is the centre of Europe, and this is wonderful that today some members of our Students’ Council are presenting a film about Ukraine in the regions at their universities. You are our ambassadors around Ukraine who bolster the youth,” she stressed.
Earlier, the short feature film Djakuyu had been awarded second place in the ‘Tourism Destination – Region’ nomination at the 11th International Tourism Film Festival ‘Tourfilm Riga 2018’ in Riga, Latvia.
In April this year, Djakuyu had won the ‘best editing’ nomination at the Romania-based monthly international film festival Short to the point.
The short feature film shows Ukraine through the eyes of a Japanese tourist as an interesting, hospitable, and unique country with breathtaking landscapes and rich history. The film was produced by the Best Friends Film company to the order of MIP and has already been presented in Tokyo, Kyiv, Kharkiv, Ostroh, and Lviv.
