The objective of the Baltic Event is to raise international awareness and generate interest in feature film projects from the Baltics, Central and Eastern European countries, Russia and Scandinavia, to help finance and distribute the films, to promote projects and producers, and to build a network for further co-productions.

In 2012, the Baltic Event is continuing its established and proven format of a co-production market, a script workshop, presentation of the latest Baltic productions, screenings and an industry day. The Co-Production Market presents 12 feature films in development from the Baltics, Scandinavia, central and eastern Europe, Russia and Ukraine; the POWR Baltic Stories Exchange workshop features eight scriptwriters with feature film scripts from the Baltic and Nordic countries; the Coming Soon section presents the latest productions from the Baltic countries to sales agents, distributors and festival selectors; the Screenings section introduces completed projects from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Finland; the Industry Day includes panels, training sessions and roundtables on current issues for the regional film industry.
