Serious discussions, widely respected Lithuanian and international filmmakers, events for industry guests, social and educational projects is essential part of the festival, as well as cheerful parties.

The partnership with European Union's MEDIA program, membership of CICAE organization is a testimony of the quality and professionalism of Vilnius IFF.

In 2009 Vilnius IFF for the first time presented the competition programme "New Europe - New Names" with a solid international Jury. Only the best debut films from East and Central Europe were presented for "The Best film" award. It will become an annual competition since it has been received like a small diamond by audience and mass media.
