Special initiative to unite world Lithuanians through cinema

This year "Cinema under the stars" which for a decade has been organizing the outdoor films together with the Lithuanian film center presents a special initiative - screening of a Lithuanian classic film to unite world Lithuanians.

On August 5, the “Lithuanian Film Night” will screen one of the most beautiful Lithuanian films, the restored version of Walnut Bread by Arūnas Žebriūnas (1978) in Lithuania and abroad. The Cathedral Square in Vilnius was chosen for the event, but this classic movie will be simultaneously played in Kaunas, Panevėžys, Alytus, Druskininkai, Nida, and many other places. “Last year, we organized a free screening of Raimundas Banionis’ Children from the Hotel America in the Cathedral Square in Vilnius, and we saw that people have been longing for Lithuanian classic movies.
