The main priority of Kaunas IFF is a combination of the artistic and social statements in film. The festival continues its strategy to present exclusively Lithuanian or Baltic premiers.
Kaunas IFF is the official festival and distribution partner of the innovative network “Eye on Films”, supported by MEDIA Mundus, a member of the CICAE network, and the Lithuanian representative organisation in the European Network of Young Cinema – Nisi Masa. Retrospective programmes combined with panel discussions, master-classes, special lectures represent important tools for film culture revival in Lithuania.
