Sidabrinė gervė

Sidabrinė gervė (Silver Crane) are the Lithuanian film industry awards for best actors, directors and films. The annual awards were presented from 2008 on by AVAKA (audiovizualinių kūrinių autorių teisių asociacija), the (national) Association for Author Rights of Audiovisual Artists. The award statuette was created by Audrius Liaudanskas [lt]. In 2019 the Lithuanian Film Academy, which presented the awards, retired due bankruptcy. As a result the awards for that year were cancelled. Lithuanian film industry awards "Silver Crane" returned in 2020 and was held by the Audiovisual works copyright association AVAKA, which, after announcing the competition in 2019, acquired the rights to the „Silver Crane Award“.[1][2]
