Mayor‘s Invitation

Vilnius loves cinema! Local and international film festivals taking place all year round and gathering crowds in the cinema theatres, Lithuanian films earning the highest international awards, and growing attention of international film directors and producers are all witness to
the film-friendly atmosphere.


Cinema is not only an inseparable part of the cultural life of Vilnius citizens, but also one of the strongest branches of creative industries in the capital. Professionals working in film industry let the name of Vilnius echo loudly on the international level, while the cinematographic locations have already played a role in the world-wide famous historical dramas,
detectives and even sci-fi series.


We welcome you in Vilnius – the audiovisual hub open for  filmmakers from all over the world!
