We start a new stage with the release of the sixth collection. Traditionally, the collection is divided into ‘Yellow’, designed for film clubs in schools, universities, NGOs and libraries, and ‘Green’ for educational establishments of State penitentiary service of Ukraine. This year's selection includes many projects that have been honored at Docudays UA in recent years: the film, which was shortlisted for the Oscars, as well as three films by young Ukrainian directors, created within the Civil Pitch platform. While working on these projects, the documentary filmmakers and the activists created new documentaries that promote changes in society. The new collection also includes the film Bully directed by Lee Hirsch. Thanks to which the All-Ukrainian Campaign against cyberbullying took place where Docudays UA film clubs also participated.

The whole team is involved into the process of creating the collections: the management, human rights experts, programming department, communication department, and technical department. Everyone is working on the main task: to create a selection that could provide the best tools for the Network operation and select films that could address important issues to the audience, taking into account its specifics. This year, the new collection also had a special focus on reforms and advocacy activities. To work on the scripts we  involved experts from different fields who have a vision of what legal basis is needed for tangible changes.Twelve films were included in the collection for the high schools students, students and youth:
