The first film studio in Ukraine (then the Ukrainian SSR) was founded in 1919 in Odessa. Nine years later, the Kiev Cinema Factory was established. In 1957, the Kiev studio was named after Alexander Dovzhenko, a renowned Ukrainian film producer, director and screenwriter. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, the studios became property of the Ukrainian government.
Important Ukrainian film directors include Alexander Dovzhenko, Larisa Shepitko, Leonid Bykov, Sergei Parajanov, Grigory Chukhray and others. Some Ukrainian actors, such as Vera Kholodnaya and Bohdan Stupka, have achieved international fame.
