NATIONAL COMPETITION AWARDS WILL BE SELECTED BY JURY CHAIRED BY TAYFUN PİRSELİMOĞLU

Distinguished writer-director Tayfun Pirselimoğlu will serve as the jury president of the National Golden Tulip Competition in the 32nd Istanbul Film Festival, to be organised between 30 March and 14 April by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts, sponsored by Akbank.

WARSAW: Acclaimed young, female directors, Dominga Sotomayor and Katarzyna Klimkiewicz have launched an Indiegogo campaign to finance their joint short film project The Time Before.

VILNIUS: Lithuania will host the first Baltic presence at the Clermont-Ferrand IFF running 1-9 February 2013.

An aching look at first love in peril, Jacek Borcuch’s Lasting shows viewers just enough of its protagonists’ bliss to make us brokenhearted at the prospect of its premature end. Fine-tuned on every level, it’s unshowy but should generate strong enough word-of-mouth to succeed at the arthouse.
John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

“Lithuanian short films must be introduced to the international film industry.” This is the guiding principle of the short film agency “Lithuanian Shorts” that will attend the largest short film festival in Europe, Clermont-Ferrand. During the festival, which is scheduled to take place from February 1-9, Lithuania will be the first of the Baltic countries to introduce the work of its outstanding short filmmakers to an international audience.

IDFA, CPH:DOX, DOK Leipzig, MoMA´s Documentary Fortnight, and even SUNDANCE Festival: those are the festivals where the participating films of the 2012 edition of DOK.Incubator started their road to success. After six months of hard work at editing and distribution, all eight participant projects have gained international recognition. In addition, five of them are discussing or have already signed contracts with key European sales agents.

Three films were among the winners at the Sundance IFF awards ceremony on 26 January.
