Fact Not Fiction Films has confirmed that their latest feature-length documentary film ‘The Frontier Ukraine’, a co-production with London-based JTEC Productions is set for a 2017 release.

The film is a passion project for Producer/Directors, John Taylor and Elliott Crawford. Filmed over several visits to the Ukraine in 2015 and 2016, the film covers an important ongoing story.

The film focuses on the recent conflict in Ukraine and the dire implications this has had on the country and Europe as a whole. It delves into the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 and the human cost being paid in the East of Ukraine.

Producer/Directors, John Taylor and Elliott Crawford, stated:

“We are excited to see the public reaction to the final piece and keen to show the true reality of the conflict in Ukraine to a wider audience.”

Fact Not Fiction Films producer, Tristan Loraine stated:

“John and Elliott are incredible film makers. They spent nearly 2 years of their life on this project, a tribute to independent film makers determined to deliver a balanced overview of a real human story.”

The documentary received an Interim Certificate as a British Film from the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport in August of 2015 and is now in the final stages of post-production.
