The 12th Baltic Event, taking place on November 26-29, granted five awards, two of which came back in the hands of Lithuanian producers.

The Best Pitch Award by the market’s long-time partner Screen International was given out to Lithuanian producer Uljana Kim and her project Seneca’s Day. The film is directed by acclaimed director Kristijonas Vildžiūnas and aimed to be the first ever co-production between all three Baltic countries. The diploma was given to Uljana Kim by Screen’s representative Martin Blaney. A feature article on the project will be published on screendaily.com, and Martin Blaney will continue to monitor the film’s progress through development and production.

Cannes Marché du film Producers’ Network awarded free accreditation for their 2014 edition to two young and promising producers. One of them was Lithuanian producer Lukas Trimonis with his project Miracle (dir. Eglė Vertelytė). Tragicomic drama is Eglė Vertelytė’s feature debut and has already received support from the Lithuanian Film Centre and MEDIA.

The 12th edition of Baltic Event, the largest co-production platform in the region of Northern and Central Europe, hosted nearly 300 guests from over 30 countries.
