Join us at the next Baltic Film Festival - this November, New York City
We return to Scandinavia House this November
The festival returns November 7-10, 2019 with another terrific line-up of films. Our programmers have started to review films for the next festival.
We are happy to review all films produced in the Baltic States or produced by Baltic filmmakers who currently reside outside Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. We do not charge an entry film to filmmakers. If you are a filmmaker and would like for us to review your film for possible inclusion, please email us a screener link and information about the film and the director.

The Other Cinema of Northern Europe
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 in one era or another that ultimately only galvanized their creative ambitions for features, documentaries, and animation shorts. Through the screening of both the latest productions and selected classics, the inaugural 2019 New York Baltic Film Festival will offer New Yorkers an unprecedented opportunity to see the best in Northern European film making.
The 2019 New York Baltic Film Festival is presented Scandinavia House and organized 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, the Consulate General of Finland in New York, ASIFA-East, and the American Scandinavian Foundation.
