We all at SOFA would like to thank – or AČIŪ as we say in Lithuanian – our Lithuanian SOFA Vilnius partner from the very first moment: Rolandas Kvietkauskas! Thank you so much for supporting Lithuanian cinema, for bringing Lithuanian film to the international cinemas, and for all the film support schemes at the Lithuanian Films Centre for local authors. Last but not least, for making SOFA – School of Film Advancement in Vilnius possible! We wish you all the warmest on your new path and all the best to your successor Laimonas Ubavičius. Thank you! <3__#SOFA #filmadvancement #education #film #cinema #sofafilmadvancement #CivilSocietyCooperation #lithuanianfilms #lithuanianfilmscentre #LaimonasUbavičius #RolandasKvietkauskas Video: Max von MatthiessenGepostet von SOFA – School of Film Advancement am Mittwoch, 30.

a workshop for up-and-coming film professionals
SOFA – School of Film Advancement invites young film agents for a workshop training to Warsaw (Poland), Tbilisi (Georgia) and Vilnius (Lithuania). The program’s special quality is its unique target group: SOFA is looking for professionals with previous experience in cultural management from Central or Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the republics of South Caucasus, Greece, Israel, Germany, or the MENA region. SOFA doesn’t aim to educate film directors or producers. We support culture promoters, mediators and catalyzers with unique film/cinema project ideas for the local and international audience in their country of origin – in all possible creative shapes.
SOFA helps its participants to make their innovative »dream project« come true and – at the same time – develops regional film culture and industry.
Don’t sit on your couch: join SOFA!
