Film festival 'BRAVE WORD' („DRĄSUS ŽODIS“)



Published october 07, 2015

The ‘Brave word’ festival is the first and, so far, the only film festival in Europe that aims to show the problems caused by corruption, its forms, reasons and effects on individuals and the whole of society in a vivid and interesting fashion. This way, TI Lithuania seeks to draw society’s attention to the exceptionally grave consequences of corruption and our individual capabilities to fight it. During the length of the festival’s 4-5 movies – thrillers, dramas, comedies – are shown to the public for free, followed by discussions with anti-corruption experts.

The first festival was organized in 2010.
