"Go get some rosemary!" may well become a new motto for all who have watched the film Go Get Some Rosemary in Kaunas International Film Festival. With this phrase, the authors of the film Benny and Josh Safdies expressed the tiny boundary between the state of happiness and the state of sadness. You go to get some rosemary from the store and something may change, your sadness and loneliness may be replaced by new ideas, your problems may seem ridiculous and you may be overwhelmed with joy.

Great stories, special effects, and even Twitter have an effect in determining the winners at Filminute, the international one-minute film festival.

When the Pusan International Film Festival (October 8 - 16, 2009) lights its screens for 355 films from across the globe, a sizeable European artistic delegation is among the guests presenting their films. Backed by the MEDIA Programme of the European Union, European Film Promotion (EFP) is supporting the European film presence in Pusan for the 12th year running and is bringing a delegation of 23 directors and actors from 13 different countries to this important Asian festival. Moreover, with EFP's backing, eight European directors will present their films in the newly created Flash Forward Competition focussed on non-Asian directors.

After the screening of the film Bouzkachi: The Chant of Steppes on Saturday night, viewers of Kaunas International Film Festival had an opportunity to meet and talk with the artist Stasys Eidrigevičius. He said he was very happy to meet the Lithuanian audience and introduce the film in which he played.
