Synopsis

Each year the Baltic programme unites the latest films by authors from the region. It includes works by long-term experimental filmmakers, who shoot their films on 16mm and 8mm film formats, as well as the ever growing numbers of new authors. This year new authors are especially dominant thanks to the BAL film school that started last autumn, as well as the experimental film course at the LKA National film school. Many films in the programme, either directly or metaphorically, reflect on the experiences that we all met during the pandemic. This reveals itself through in-depth self- reflection, anxiety and, in the end, self acceptance.
