The annual short film festival Tinklai has kicked off on the premises of a former tobacco factory in Klaipeda showcasing an international and independent selection of shorts.
The festival always features screenings in unconventional settings, and later this month will move on to the Vente Ornithology Station, Vilnius City Hall Square and a disused cinema in Trakai. More than 100 short films from Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Latvia, Estonia, Russia, Lithuania and France make up the diverse program, raging from documentaries to experimental movies. The festival runs until Sept.25. See www.tinklai.net for program and venue information.
