The Riga International Film Festival (RIGA IFF) paints a wholesome picture of the most daring and important European cinema of today, and allows for successful curation of Latvian film within a larger context. The festival features several competition programmes, headed by a multi-genre feature film competition within which an international jury chooses a title for the RIGA IFF Award.
More than 100 screenings in 11 film sections will run along with lectures, discussions and other events, gathering hundreds of international film professionals in Riga.
Part of the festival’s infrastructure is the legendary cinema Splendid Palace (member of Europa Cinemasnetwork), it hosts most of the film programme and events. The screenings are held also in the film theatres K.Suns and Kino Bize as well as the Latvian National Library and Kaņepe Culture Centre.
