“Thinking about Lithuanian cinema, we want to be happy that we are gradually abandoning the complexes of a small country and stop comparing it with the big countries of the film industry. Our thinking, identity, and minority can just as well be the strengths to help construct an authentic film narrative. I am also happy with the exceptional nominees for this year’s awards, “said Narvydas Naujalis, Chairman of the Lithuanian Cinematographers’ Association, at the beginning of the ceremony.
