    VILNIUS: Twelve short film projects from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, alongside guest country Greece, have been selected for the 11th edition of the Baltic Pitching Forum (BPF), which will be held in Vilnius 10 – 13 October 2023.

    It is the first time when the Forum has invited a guest country that is located out of the Baltic Sea region.

    In advance of the BPF, the selected participants and projects will receive personal consultation on their screenplays. During the event itself the participants will also take part in a pitching masterclass as well as a number of open lectures.

    The 11th BPF pitching sessions will be available online to industry professionals around the world.

    The Baltic Pitching Forum is organised by the Lithuanian Short Film Agency “Lithuanian Shorts” in partnership with the Riga International Film Festival, the Riga International Short Film Festival 2ANNAS, and PÖFF Shorts, with support from the Lithuanian Council for Culture.
