    New York, March 14 — The Kinofest NYC 2011 film festival will take place in New York's East Village starting this Wednesday, March 16 through Sunday, March 20. This is the second annual Kinofest NYC festival. Since last year, it has grown from one to two locations and expanded the number of screening sessions from six to twelve. The screening venues are two East Village landmarks: The Ukrainian Museum, which is sponsoring eight of the film screenings, and the Millennium Film Workshop.

    Kinofest NYC is New York's only film festival showcasing emerging Ukrainian and post-Soviet cinema. The inaugural Kinofest NYC film festival, which as an unqualified success, took place in early 2010 at The Ukrainian Museum. Films representing Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, Lithuania, Georgia and the USA were shown over six screening sessions. The event attracted sizable audiences and brought together a variety of guest presenters, films and enthusiasts.

    "This year we have expanded the festival to two screening locations – The Ukrainian Museum and the Millenium Film Workshop – both of which are established East Village cultural institutions and the perfect outlets for our selection of films," said festival director Andrew Kotliar. "With a larger and increasingly experienced organizing team, we were able to widen our scope and increase our offerings."

    Program director Damian Kolodiy has finalized the festival program and is excited about the growth in the festival's presentations. "We've got a good mix of films, short documentaries and narratives, some really innovative and creative work that has never been seen in the United States before," said Kolodiy.

    Hanya Krill, who heads the Museum's film program, feels strongly that the festival as a forum for presenting the cinematic arts plays an essential role in meeting the Museum's mission. Although the Museum has screened films on occasion in the past, "instituting the film program in 2008 was a signal that film is an art form that deserves special attention," said Ms. Krill. The Kinofest NYC film festival, which is a magnet for new and inspired films from Ukraine and beyond, "dovetails perfectly with the Museum's presentation of film within the context of Ukrainian culture."
