The Best of KROK

Tuesday, March 01, 2016 7:00 pm

The SVA Animation Department invites you to “The Best of KROK”, an evening of animated films from the world renowned Ukrainian-Russian festival KROK.
This event is free and open to the public.  No RSVP required.
KROK is the Ukrainian for “step”. It is movement, the movement forward. Symbolically enough, the festival never stands still even in the literal sense of these words: by tradition it is celebrated aboard a comfortable ship, cruising in Ukraine and Russia by turns. From one hand, it creates a unique creative atmosphere within the ship, and from the other hand it enables the festival to show its programmes to the audiences in the towns along the route.
The festival is a fruit of the creative collaboration of Russian and Ukrainian cinematographers. Year after year it broadens its geography and the number of attendees: the last KROK welcomed its participants from more than 30 countries with more than 170 entries. The festival is a show of the best works in world’s animation produced during the last two years. It is called upon to facilitate the exchange of the creative experience, the search of new styles, ideas, styles and technologies.
