The office wants the English-language video of up to three minutes should feature other accents and faces, including pianists Gabrielius Alekna and Mūza Rubackytė, opera soloist Edgaras Montvydas, Mettis quartet, as well as the modernist architecture of Kaunas, works by symbolists and lasers.

The government's office says the video should present Lithuania as a modern and creative country. The video should be ready by mid-December and be shown during independence anniversary events abroad, with subtitles in the English, French, Spanish, Russian, German, Polish and Chinese languages.

The budget of the video is set at 24,000 euros.

The video should be distributed to the media with the goal of reaching foreign public leaders, opinion shapers and decision makers.

Lithuania will mark 100 years since the restoration of its freedom. On Feb. 16 of 1918, the Council of Lithuania "proclaimed the restoration of the independent state of Lithuania, founded on democratic principles, with Vilnius as its capital and declared the termination of all state ties, which formerly bound the state to other nations."
