This year the Paramedic is on the main poster of the festival/ He came to tell grandparents the rules of self-isolation, which is the main feature of the pandemic. The Paramedic becomes a hero of a fairy tale, because people always turn into fairy tales an experience that they cannot logically explain. In 2021, the organizers of the festival invited Anatoliy Surma, the author of cartoons from the village of Teofipol, Khmelnytsky region, to collaborate on the identity and festival video.
The 18th Docudays UA is supported by the Swedish Embassy in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation and the Ukrainian State Film Agency.
