Taking place between the 1st and 17th of October, 2010, Kaunas International Film Festival is one of Lithuania’s most appreciated film festivals and the main film event in Kaunas, the country’s second largest city. It presents films that have been acclaimed worldwide and also showcases new talent. The main priority of Kaunas IFF is a combination of the artistic and social statements in film. In the ‘Wide Angle’ section, acclaimed films are screened that reflect both modern tendencies in film art and social issues relevant to the global context. Kaunas IFF is the only film festival in the region to present a special section on music films with ‘Music Moves the World’ and films about art in the ‘All the Muses’ section. These are the three main sections in the festival, with additional retrospective programmes and theme sections each year.
Kaunas IFF invites all cineastes and film professionals to see the most interesting and noteworthy films created over the past few years and to use Kaunas IFF as a mean of communication by participating in discussions, lectures and meetings with film professionals.
