The American-Scandinavian Foundation is pleased to co-present the first New York Baltic Film Festival from October 18 through October 21 at Scandinavia House. Through the screening of both the latest productions and selected classics, the inaugural 2018 New York Baltic Film Festival offers an unprecedented opportunity to see the best in northern European film making.

The three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania have been producing motion pictures since 1910. While not as well-known as those in Scandinavia and other parts of Europe, their industries have met challenges throughout the years that have galvanized their creative ambitions for features, documentaries, and animation shorts.

Please check the website closer to the dates for more detailed information on the schedule and ticketing information.

The New York Baltic Film Festival is presented by the Consulate General of Estonia, Consulate General of Lithuania and Consulate of Latvia in New York. Programming support is from the Estonian Film Institute, National Film Center of Latvia, and Lithuanian Film Center. Funding for the festival is courtesy of governments of the Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and by the generous donations of members of the Baltic community in New York. Additional support to the festival is from the Lithuanian Cultural Institute and the Consulate General of Finland in New York.
