The name of Lithuania will be reiterated louder than ever at this year’s Karlovy Vary International Film Festival which opens today. After a 15-year hiatus the audiences will have an opportunity to see a retrospective of classics from the Baltic countries titled “Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary”. World premieres of two renowned Lithuanian filmmakers will take place at the festival with both films participating in the competition programmes. Lithuanians will also actively take part in industry events, a press release from the Lithuanian Film Centre states.
