Vilnius International film festival pays tribute to great Lithuanian film makers

Vilnius International film festival pays tribute to great Lithuanian film makers, which are better recognized internationally than locally.

Jonas Mekas was born in Lithuania, but immigrated to New York in 1949. That same year, he made his first films, using a 16mm Bolex camera. Jonas Mekas is a filmmaker, journalist, teacher, curator and author, and is considered one of the most important representatives of US avant-garde cinema.

Special screenings of his new film "Sleepless nights stories" are scheduled on the big screen during Vilnius International film festival.
The movie was shown in this year's Berlinale. For two hours we stroll with Jonas Mekas through New York nights, through apartments, studios, backstage rooms, galleries, bars and clubs. We meet his old acquaintances like Ken and Flo Jacobs, Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, Carolee Schneemann, Marina Abramovic, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Pip Chodorov, Bjork and others.

Another special screening, dedicated to Jonas Mekas - film "Visionaries" by Academy award winner Chuck Workman.
In 1962 together with his fellow colleagues Mekas founded The Film Makers' Cooperative, and in 1964 he founded The Filmmakers' Cinematheque, that gradually developed into Anthology Film Archives, one of the biggest American avant-garde film archives in the world. Film "Visionaries" is dedicated to the Anthology film archives.

He is a graduate of the Moscow Film School (VGIK).
