The four-day event includes 18 film screenings at Scandinavia House, featuring seven US premiere screenings and nine New York City premieres, the center said.

"New York audiences will have an opportunity to watch the notable classic films that have rarely been seen outside of Europe, the latest features, documentaries and animation films from some of the best established and upcoming filmmakers from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia," it said.

The festival aims to promote the three Baltic countries, which celebrate their independence centenaries this year, to New Yorkers.
