Lithuania Introduces Baltic Shorts to Clermont-Ferrand


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

    The film agency Lithuanian Shorts will have a stand with DVD collections, as well as market screenings of five Lithuanian filmmakers. Local producers, TV programmers and distributors will be present at the market.

    “Lithuania is often viewed as an undiscovered, unidentified, and maybe sometimes even exotic territory to the majority of international TV company representatives and producers; however, this by no means indicates that it is in any way inferior,” Lithuanian Shorts director Rimante Daugelaite said. “Lithuanians show a tendency to create interesting and relevant dramas in which it is increasingly popular to philosophize and raise difficult questions.”

    Rolandas Kvietkauskas, the director of Lithuanian Film Centre (LFC), noted the emergence of a mature generation of short film directors in Lithuania. “We sincerely hope that participating in international film festivals will allow an international audience to discover Lithuanian films, too,” he said.

    Along with a catalogue of Lithuanian short film productions, Lithuanian Shorts runs an online platform as a database which stores and stream short films made in Lithuania.
