The 26th edition of the Vilnius International Film Festival “Kino Pavasaris” will be running entirely virtually from 18 March-5 April, bringing the Lithuanian audience a selection of 104 feature films and 44 shorts across various sections. It also invites viewers to answer the question “To Act or/and To Be?” in order to “carefully look inwards, and observe global developments and their effect on us as individuals, as a society and as living organisms”, as artistic director Mantė Valiūnaitė explains. The festival will open with the Golden Bear winner There Is No Evil [+lire aussi :

Furthermore, in partnership with the hotel industry, the festival is launching the “Staycation with Kino Pavasaris” experience. Viewers will be able to transport their digital screenings from their sofas to six selected hotels in Vilnius. By checking in for an overnight stay, they can enjoy unlimited access to the festival films and even the red carpet. Algirdas Ramaška, CEO of the Vilnius International Film Festival, explains: “When you cannot go outside and the media is blowing up with negativity, it is hard to stay sane. We help people to redirect their attention to more positive thoughts.”

In the European Debut Competition, ten films will be available for streaming, and the section will be opened by the out-of-competition title Gagarin [+lire aussi :
