MARIJA KAVTARADŻE

Director (Lithuania)

Marija Kavtaradzė was born in Vilnius, Lithuania. She studied film directing at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre.

Her short film “I’m Twenty Something” won best student film at the Lithuanian Film Academy Awards in 2015. Kavtaradzė also co-wrote the feature film “The Saint,” which premiered at Busan IFF and Warsaw ISFF in 2016.

Her debut feature « Summer Survivors » made a splash at the Toronto Film Festival. This road-movie across Lithuania moved audiences due to its unique tone to portray mental illness – light-hearted, humorous and ultimately radiant.
