Dear Friends

We are very pleased to update that after 7 years of hard work and toil that The Invisible Front has won a major victory. The film aka Nematomas Frontas will be in theaters throughout Lithuania in Forum Cinemas August 15th through September. We greatly appreciate and give special thanks to the support you have sent us along the way and although updates have been far and few between we haven't forgotten about our pledge. 

If you have been following us then you will know how this living process of documentary film making has been a long and difficult road. Part of the beauty of working with this subject for so long, in particular, is that we have been able to capture the essence of the partisan's story which took place 60 years ago. 

And we indeed feel that the story of the partisans will be inspiring when you see it. 

As Andrius Mamontovas puts it "No one told us about the partisans when I was at school. We simply did not know about it. No doubt that people of our generation have to see the film. We should discover something which we should have known already".

Before the team flies out to Lithuania in August we would like to invite all of you who might be in Vilnius August 13th or Kaunas August 14th to join us for a special theatrical premiere of The Invisible Front and to personally fully hear your feelings and opinions of the film. Let us know if you can be there.

We thank you again for your enduring patience on this most challenging and nearly forgotten subject matter and remind you all that the support you gave us came at a most critical stage. Without your support we might not have made it.

The Lithuania release, we hope, will not the final stop for The Invisible Front. We have worked out a plan to bring the film to New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles in November. If we don't see you in Lithuania we hope to share the full experience with you in the U.S. 

Thanks always for your trust and support. 

Glory to the partisans!!!!

Best regards,

The Invisible Front

Hi Friends.

Thanks for all your support and patience. We are happy to announce that The Invisible Front has made its way to the festival circuit and has won The Accolade film festival in San Diego, Lucerne film festival in Switzerland, and The DiXie film festival in Athens Georgia. Amazing to finally being able to participate in the festival circuit after nearly 5 years of hard work. The film is a very detailed and honest account of the Lithuanian armed underground resistance and we hope that The Invisible Front will make an impression when you watch it. The history of WWII is well known, but the specifics of this time are being lost a little more each day. The film is a reminder of the price paid for fighting against totalitarian regimes by brave people that most of us never think about. We hope to have honored them and in return, remind us in the process how the fight for freedom is never over. 

We will update again with hopeful news of distribution and when you can view the film.

Thanks again for your support and patience. We look forward to sending out gifts in the near future !!
