VILNIUS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL "KINO PAVASARIS"
Lovers of good films say jokingly they take at least a week’s leave every March to be able to see the films demonstrated at this Festival and meet participating Lithuanian and foreign celebrities, because off-work hours or weekends are not enough. The Festival is distinctive in that is has a large army of loyal fans who can hardly wait from one Festival to the next. The Festival’s geography is not limited to Vilnius: this two-week film demonstration project expands to Kaunas, Klaipėda, Panevėžys and Šiauliai, attracting over 50,000 people and showing over 100 films every year. The Festival was born in 1995, in the legendary Cinema-House Lietuva. Now it is closed and films are not demonstrated here anymore, but many still remember it with nostalgia and associate the Festival with this particular cinema-house.
