Showing in Lithuania...

I've heard today that apparently "Contempt of Conscience" is going to be screening at the 2009 Inconvenient Films Human Rights Film Festival - in Lithuania.

From their website:

The festival, organized by Lithuanian Centre for Human Rights in cooperation with “WatchDocs: Human Rights in Film IFF” will be held October 22-30, 2009 in Vilnius, Lithuania. Additional screenings will take place in Kaunas, Klaipeda and other regions of Lithuania during the following month.

Ad Hoc: Inconvenient Films” is the first and so far the only one human rights film festival in Lithuania as well as in the Baltic states. The mission of this festival is to raise awareness of human rights issues around the world and to connect them to those that are present in Lithuania. By presenting various documentaries on main human rights topics organizers hope to encourage public debates on human rights issues and ways to address them. The festival became one of the biggest film festivals and cultural events in Lithuania with “Ad Hoc: Inconveninet Films 2008” being visited by 13 000 viewers.
