Post: The Internet called for the inclusion of Ukrainian actors in all new films


Activists call for quotas in films for Ukrainian actors as well as LGBT people

MOSCOW, September 18 – RIA Novosti. A petition was published on the website calling for a mandatory quota for Ukrainian artists in all world films. The document is being sent to Cannes Film Festival president Iris Knobloch on behalf of the Ukrainian Film Association.

“The world does not know enough about Ukraine’s struggle, and through cinema, the depth of our people’s pain can be deeply conveyed. The rights of Ukrainians are constantly violated. Therefore, we call for a Ukrainian actor to appear in every film, as well as racial characteristics. In the petition, ethnic groups, women, people with disabilities and the community “LGBTQ+. At least one of the lead roles or a significant supporting role,” it reads.

Moreover, as activists point out, their initiatives will attract potential audiences to festival films.

It was previously reported that Ukrainian blogger Ilona Chernobay was expelled from the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival due to provocation.
