The 17th edition of Vilnius Short Film Festival is kicking off on Wednesday, featuring “trend-setting and future-predicting short films”, including those made by artificial intelligence, according to the organizers.
The festival, which will run for almost a week, will see the screening of over 100 short films in Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda and Siauliai cinemas and on home cinema screens.
“The gem of the repertoire, Algorithmic Mirages is a showcase of films made by, or with the help by, artificial intelligence. It will take us on a puzzling tour of synthetic films made using AI tools,” the organizers have said in a press release.
An international jury will watch the festival’s competition programs and name the best films in the national and international competitions. One film will receive special mention by critics and one will win the Grand Prix.
Established in 2006, Vilnius Short Film Festival is one of the biggest short film festivals in the Baltic countries.
