The 2008 budget for film from the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture is €2.3 million. Two to three Lithuanian feature films are produced each year. A priority for the Lithuanian film industry is to develop international relations. The country ratified the European Convention on cinema co-production in 1999. Lithuania joined the European Cinema Support fund EURIMAGES in 2007. EURIMAGES has already supplied funding for two Lithuanian film projects: Low Lights (director Ignas Miskinis, producer Ieva Norviliene) received a €160,000 grant and a Lithuanian/Latvian co-production, the animated feature The Golden Horse (directors Valentas Askinis and Signe Baumane) received a €350,000 grant.
The permanent representatives from Lithuania for the European Cinema Support Fund are director Audrius Stonys and producer Uljana Kim.
