Belarusian films
VODBLISK is an online theater for independent Belarusian cinema, which you can not find or watch otherwise because of censorship and state control. VODBLISK aims to promote independent Belarusian cinema and give voice to independent Belarusian filmmakers, who in its’ majority have to live in exile nowadays.
Film of the September:
Common Language
Volia Chajkouskaya
Director Volia Chajkouskaya, who was always considered the «white crow» in her family, visits her parents in Vitebsk to have a sincere discussion about the past and find a common language. Poignant conversations are turned into a documentary film, essentially amounting to a confession of love for the family.
Film "Daughter"
Director, scriptwriter, and journalist.
Mara Tamkovich
In an instant, the lives of father and daughter changed irreversibly.
About us:
VODBLISK is an online movie theater created by the team of the Northern Lights Film Festival. Now you can watch modern Belarusian independent cinema online - both feature films and documentaries.

New movies are added to the platform each month; you can purchase access to any of them for 30 days, allowing you to view the film as many times as you'd like! In addition to films, interviews with Belarusian filmmakers are published on the platform and across our social networks.

We’re constantly dealing with a problem: the global audience doesn’t know about the Belarusian cinema — we’re not even talking about the detailed knowledge — but barely about the mere fact of its existence. And those who want to familiarize themselves with the Belarusian cinematography simply cannot do so.

There are no foreign or domestic services that allow watching Belarusian films carefully selected by curators.

We have always lacked some kind of Belarusian Netflix that everyone in Belarus and around the world would know about as a platform where you can come and find all of the Belarusian films (or at least a lot of them) in one place, as well as learn about the context of Belarusian cinema and get to know our authors.

VODBLISK is exactly such a platform, designed to shed light on Belarusian cinema and make it accessible, recognized, and popular.
Together, we are popularizing Belarusian cinema

We make Belarusian cinema accessible, recognizable, and popular
