Sunny Bunny

Sunny Bunny

Sunny Bunny is the main national LGBT cultural event known far beyond Ukraine. Over the years, Sunny Bunny has become an important communicative platform for the LGBT community in Ukraine. This event is created by the community and for the community. But the scope and worldwide recognition of Molodist Film Festival creates the opportunity for a broad public discussion of topics and issues that arise within the program. Established in 2001, it’s the world’s second (after Berlinale’s Teddy Award) LGBT-program on international film festivals. The program has its own international jury to decide the winner.
