After the Docudays UA events in March, the festival team organizes non-commercial screenings in universities, galleries, cultural and educational centers in Kyiv. In addition, documentary films are screened at the venues of partner festivals across Ukraine. In the fall, the Traveling Human Rights Documentary Film Festival Docudays UA will start in 23 regions of Ukraine and the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
