Core changes in VIFF industry event Meeting Point – Vilnius

At its 10th edition, Meeting Point - Vilnius, the industry event of Vilnius Film Festival Kino Pavasaris, renews its structure and programme. Alongside with these changes, Rita Stanelyte who has lead 8 years of successful editions is stepping out of her role as the director of MPV.

„It‘s always difficult to part with immense members of the festival team. Rita has made MPV one of the key industry platforms in the Baltics as well as in the international panorama. Many projects presented at MPV continue to thrive in international film festivals and the distribution circuit all thanks to Rita and the team she leads. The whole gang of VIFF Kino Pavasaris and Meeting Point – Vilnius thank Rita for the tremendous job done. We all wish her great success for her new and exciting adventures” - says Vilnius Film Festival’s executive director Algirdas Ramaška.
