Activity

INSIGHTMEDIA GROUP is one of Ukraine’s best-known groups of film producing companies. The group is engaged in searching for new ideas and developing, producing and distributing audiovisual content of its own and of other Ukrainian film producers. The group also provides consultancy services and supports film projects of any complexity.

STRUCTURE:

INSIGHTMEDIA PRODUCER CENTER was founded in 2001 to produce television content, particularly documentary films, for national television channels. In 2007 the company was reoriented to produce full-length films for wide distribution. The first such film was Mykhailo Illienko’s Firecrosser which made the top 10 of the Ukrainian box office and was nominated for the Academy Awards as the best foreign film. Over the past five years, Insightmedia Producer Center has produced 16 full-length films and is one of the national cinema leaders.

INSIGHTMEDIA is a company which has since 2008 been engaged in supporting film debuts and producing short and animation films as well as in international co-production projects. Among the most successful projects implemented by the Insightmedia studios are Maryna Stepanska’s debut Falling and Roman Bondarchuk’s debut Volcano. These films have competed in dozens of international film festivals, including A-category ones, particularly the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.

CO-PRODUCTION AND COOPERATION WITH GOVERNMENT AGENCIES:

INSIGHTMEDIA Group uses all available opportunities for implementing its projects. One of the most efficient film project financing instruments, which significantly influences the development of national cinema, is government support. Over the past five years alone, INSIGHTMEDIA has vied in 10 tenders and concluded contracts with the State Film Agency of Ukraine worth more than UAH160M, thus maintaining the interrupted production process, with four new full-length films already released in 2020. Being aware of its responsibility, INSIGHTMEDIA Group is in constant search of instruments for funding its projects. One of such instruments is international co-production with European countries (currently underway are two co-production projects: Umbrella Sky with Italy and The Man Who Stood in the Way with the Czech Republic and Slovakia) and with China and other promising Asian countries.
