The annual festival of documentary films on human rights Docudays UA celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2013. The festival will take place at the Budynok Kino cinema in Kyiv on March 22-28, 2013.
The festival is non-political and non-commercial. Entrance to all screenings within the festival is free of charge. All films in the competition program of Docudays UA are evaluated based on their artistic value and contribution to the human rights protection.

The program for the upcoming jubilee Docudays UA is still a work in progress. It usually features seminars on cooperation of NGOs and film-makers regarding human rights protection, themed exhibitions, workshops, and round table discussions. In 2012, the award-winning biographical documentary My Perestroika (2010) by Robin Hessman closed Docudays UA.
