“By counting it’s 15 years anniversary, “Kino Pavasaris” becomes a real synonym and a prophet of the spring each year. Since it’s beginning - the festival has been small, but also had a record number of the viewers, sometimes the way to make it good was complicated, but it always paid off with the sincere compliments received and honourable guests who attended the event. And the most important – 15 years has passed from the very first “Kino Pavasaris” and now we can be proud of the big contribution the festival has made in creating cinema as an intellectual form of entertainment for Lithuanian society”, - Vida Ramaskiene, the director of Vilnius International Film festival is smiling while explaining this.
