There was developed "Anarchy in Žirmûnai" screenplay – winner of New Talent Award at Cannes Film Festival in 2007. The same year Saulius Drunga became gainer of Debut of the Year Prize founded by Lithuanian Cultural Department.

About the Producer: 
Ieva Norvilienė graduated with a Master Degree in Management of Audiovisual Art from The Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre. During that time Ieva also studied Public Relations at Vilnius University in Lithuania and participated in international courses offered by such initiatives as Strategics, European Films Crossing Borders, Film Business School, EP2C (European Post Production Connection) and the Producers On The Move program, initiated by European Film Promotion (Cannes film festival, 2006) and Berlinale Talent Campus (Berlin film festival 2006). During her studies, Ieva was very active as a Producer and soon started working as a freelance Production Manager within the advertisement industry.

The film was very well received and selected for numerous film festivals such as; Rotterdam, Seoul, Melbourn, Hamburg, Cottbus and Berlin among others. After graduating, Miškinis and Norvilienė continued their collaboration and made their first feature film Diringas (2006). Due to their successful collaboration, Ieva and Ignas founded their own production and distribution company Tremora in 2005. Since 2005, Tremora has grown to become a successful production company and Miškinis and Norvilienė have broadened their activities and started new collaborations with new young nationally and internationally talented filmmakers. The new collaborations have lead to several co-productions (with Germany, Hungary and France) and a number of new projects in development. In 2007, Ieva’s film project Anarchy in Žirmūnai (2009), written by Saulius Drunga, received the MEDIA New Talent Award from the Cannes film festival. That same year she was selected to represent Lithuania at the international competition of Young Screen Entrepreneur of the Year, organized by the British Council. The same year Ieva and Ignas developed their second feature Low Lights (2009) in EAVE. Both films are in post-production now.

Film synopsis: 
Young provincial girl Vilė comes to the big town with ambitions about high education. She tries to find a rented apartment for living and meets boyish looking and wearing a T-Shirt with anarchy sign on it girl Sandra. From her first days in the big town Vilė gets a perfect guide — always strong and optimistic Sandra. Under Sandra’s anarchistic philosophy’s leadership Vilė leisurely throws away her provincial modesty and fears, but incidental meeting with member of big town’s punk community overturn all her new views. Vilė understands that Sandra’s “anarchy” has nothing to do with alternative underground culture…
