Box office collections of Ukrainian films in 2014

In 2014, only two Ukrainian films made money: “Love in the City 3” (co-production with Russia) and the documentary “Maidan” (co-production with the Netherlands).

“Love in the City 3” collected in CIS cinemas an amount that was five times its budget – $15.88 million.

The exact collections of the “Maidan” film have not yet been published. However, according to director Sergei Loznitsa, the film “fully financed itself – covered production costs. I can’t say the final collections, since the film is still being released somewhere.”
