GoDebut Film Festival 2016

GoDebut Film Festival 2016

Cinema of Baltic and Nordic countries has brought a sufficient contribution into development of cinema art.

However, it does not always receive necessary attention from an international audience. Especially this attention and support from a cinema industry is being lacked for young debuting cinema creators of that region and their works. The aim of the cinema debut festival GoDebut of Baltic and Nordic countries – to promote the activities of young and debuting cinema creators of the countries of this region, to boost their creativity, increase their prominence, and strengthen international cooperation. The festival is being organised in a Lithuanian port city Klaipėda and in one of the most beautiful resorts, included into UNESCO natural heritage object list – Neringa, on September 23-25, 2016.
