“When the Lights Go Out” selected for “Berlinale Talents. Short Film Station”


Lithuanian short film project “When the Lights Go Out” (dir. Jonas Trukanas, prod. Gabija Siurbytė) was selected for “Berlinale Talents. Short Film Station”.

With its focus on “Courage: Against All Odds”, the 15th edition of Berlinale Talents takes on the significance of everyday bravery and fearlessness for today’s film professionals.

At Short Film Station ten selected writers / directors participating in Berlinale Talents are offered a meeting platform with emerging German and international producers as well as the chance to work with a script editor during one-on-one meetings to refine their scripts. The participants get to enhance their projects before taking part in a day of in-depth meetings with producers.

Additionally, experts give participants insights into the possibilities for financing short films in Germany and Europe, as well as into the latest developments in the short film industry. The selected filmmakers will be presented at the reception for the short film industry during the Berlin International Film Festival.

Project “When the Lights Go Out” was presented at the 4th edition of “Baltic Pitching Forum” (October 2016, Vilnius).
