The 4th Rivne International Film Festival "Dream City" took place in Rivne on October 20-23. In total, 50 film directors from 18 countries watched the film festival's audience and jury.

For example, on October 22, a much larger number of viewers came to see a film by director Roman Brovko "Censored" than the cinema hall "Ukraine" could accommodate...
We are sincerely grateful to all - spectators, our volunteers, members of the jury, our partners: Ukrainian Film State Agency, Rivne City Council, Rivne Regional Executive Committee, Rivne Museum, National University Ostroh Academy, as well as information partners: Espresso TV, Rhythm TV, for their continued support over the years.
