Meeting Point Vilnius 2022 Ready to Kick Off

    Meeting Point Vilnius 2021 Meeting Point Vilnius 2021

    VILNIUS: Twenty projects from 18 countries will take part in the Coming Soon pitching session within Meeting Point Vilnius, the industry platform of the Vilnius IFF Kino Pavasaris, which will take place in a hybrid format from 30 March to 1 April 2022.

    The selected projects are debut films from late development to postproduction, and include 11 feature films, seven documentaries and two hybrid films.

    Meeting Point Vilnius also includes the Industry Screening Platform, entirely dedicated to festival programmers, distributors, sales and commissioning editors, ToT - TALKS ON TOMORROW, a framework programme of panels and inspirational talks, and Talents Nest, aiming to explore and nurture emerging professionals from the Baltic countries, ex-Soviet and Caucasian countries.

    The Vilnius IFF’s industry programme Meeting Point Vilnius (MPV) disinvited Russian projects in line with the festival’s boycott. Instead, it will dedicate a special Ukrainian day on 1 April 2022, with panels on political, institutional and film industry levels. 

    The Vilnius International Film Festival Kino Pavasaris will be held 24 March – 3 April 2022.
