House of Europe x Netflix

House of Europe x Netflix


After the full-fledged war in Ukraine started, the House of Europe and The Ukrainian Film Academy partnered with Netflix to support Ukrainian creators locally and around the world. We provided 200 stipends for creators of all levels and education on filmmaking, post-production, co-production, and pitching for 700 early to mid-stage professionals. The Ukrainian Film Academy provided 48 script development grants and post-production grants for established two-person creative teams of scriptwriters and producers, as well as exclusive online sessions with international industry experts.

The initiatives were supported by Netflix’s Fund for Creative Equity, a global fund launched in early 2021 which aims to establish more opportunities for people from underrepresented or marginalized communities to have their voices heard.

This is for continuing and developing your work

Ukrainian filmmakers got 200 stipends of EUR 1,000 to continue or develop their work: design a showreel, film a small project for their portfolio, or purchase the technical bits and bobs. Bureaucracy was minimised, with only a convincing application and a short narrative report needed.

This is for deepening your knowledge in the film industry

For one month, 247 filmmakers could access digital education sessions created by Netflix and partners. Bitesize e-learning modules on how to be successful in entry-level roles and pre-recorded webinars on tips and tricks of timeline tracking, budgeting, and scheduling in post-production from Netflix professionals were offered.

This is for learning what makes a successful television pitch

Christopher Mack, Director, Grow Creative for Netflix International Originals, gave 161 filmmakers a three-hour lecture, teaching the essentials of writing a compelling pitch document. The audience gained an understanding of how to communicate the show’s overview, world, tone, and characters, build successful season summaries and present potential episodes.

This is for getting a producer’s view on post-production

Anne McCaffrey and Mark Ritcheson, having 30+ years of experience, uncovered the latest trends in post-production for 124 producers during the two-day workshop from the New York Film Academy. Participants learned best practices for securing visual effects for small-budget films, budgeting every expense, forming a post-production team, and building a sound schedule and workflow.

This is for exploring how to produce a project with international partners

159 filmmakers attended a three-day course on co-production from the European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs. From finding partners to concluding agreements, to pitching and sourcing financing, to showcasing projects at festivals and distributing them — 13 seasoned film professionals from 7 EU countries covered each milestone of the project’s lifespan from Ukrainian filmmakers' points of view.

We connect people and opportunities

We support professional and creative exchange between Ukrainians and their EU colleagues. This encompasses 20+ programme lines managed by us and a constantly increasing database of the best opportunities offered by other European organizations. This is just the beginning: more opportunities, events and acquaintances are coming.

We are all over Ukraine

We are convinced that we should go where our support and information are needed the most: out in the regions. Organising Pop-Up Hubs, creative entrepreneurship in the regions is stimulated, whereas the Mobile Pavilion sets our concept on the move.
