"Rosa" at Riga Film Festival

The first edition of a new film event entitled FF Riga will run from September 10 through September 12. This festival was established to continue the mission of the “Arsenals” festival that had been organized annually in Riga for the past 20 years.

New Festival in the Baltic States

 

This new film event in Latvia has gained support from several key international film festivals. FF Riga is supported by Crossing Europe Filmfestival, Helsinki International Film Festival Love and Anarchy, and by the Warsaw Film Festival.

Róża (Rosa) in FF Riga Lineup

The festival lineup features nine feature films that have won awards at top festivals in our region. The Riga festival audience will have an opportunity to see Róża (Rosa) directed by Wojciech Smarzowski and co-financed by the Polish Film Institute, the Estonian production Mushrooming by Toomas Hussar, and Winter Go Away – a film made by ten Russian directors that screened at the recent Locarno International Film Festival.
