On 10-13 October  2013, ‘Vilnius Films Shorts’ – the only international and professional short film festival in Lithuania –  will be presenting the newest short films from all over the world, Vilnius Tourism Information Centre has informed.

During the eight years of its existence, the international short film festival ‘Vilnius Film Shorts’ is said to have become a platform that represents short films from all over the world, created by a new generation of the cinematographers.

Every year ‘Vilnius Films Shorts’ is aiming at featuring short films of a high level of artistic value. The organisers of the festival claim that only 10 per cent out of all 600 applicants are approved for the competition programme. The best 60 short films are going to be presented in ten parts of the competition programme and later evaluated and awarded by the international jury.

A lot of attention is paid to Lithuanian cinematographers. Therefore, each year, a special programme of the newest Lithuanian short films is presented to the audience.

In trying to promote the genre, the team of ‘Vilnius Film Shorts’ also invites film professionals to speak at an educational seminar that discusses the latest trends, as well as issues pertaining to production and distribution of short films.

The festival’s programme is going to be screened at Forum Cinemas Vingis and cinema theatres ‘Pasaka’ and ‘Skalvija’.
