Narrow Reels, Wide Eyes is a series of talks and short film programs dedicated to the legacy of amateur filmmaking in five post-Soviet countries – Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine and Russia.
An ongoing summer screening series aimed at bringing together non-commercial film exhibitors and distributors and thus creating a community-based cinema viewing space open to all city dwellers. The programme presents retrospectives as well as bold new films that often do not make it to the big screens.
Since 2016, the project is developed with the view to slow down fast cinema consumption, bring like-minded people together and contribute to the promotion of film culture in general. Film historians, researchers and critics from both Lithuania and abroad are invited to unfold a broader context. Slow Screenings are organized in thematic cycles, presenting different movements or filmmakers important in the history of cinema.
Projections is a series of film screenings and conversations meant for reflecting on our emotional well-being and challenges faced during the lockdown period. In collaboration with psychological health professionals, we invite people to explore the intersections between cinema, psychology and our everyday lives through open conversation. Here, films become a starting point for engaging in an open conversation, sharing experiences or practical advice.
