Kristina Buozyte initially wanted to make a short film (up to 20 minutes). Despite the low budget, the film producer Aidas Avizinis insisted on doing a feature film. Initially the decision to make a proper length film was skeptically received by the tutors of the film school. However, Kolekcioniere (2008) eventually was competing in Silver Crane national film award competition along with the films done by Kristina Buozyte's tutor Algimantas Puipa and other film "Loss".
