Estonian, Lithuanian films triumph at Riga International Film Festival

Estonian feature 'November' has won the top prize in competition at this year's Riga International Film Festival.

November directed by Rainer Sarnet wons the #RIGA_IFF_AWARD_2017.

In the words of the international jury, the film is "a cinematic gem which creates a visually exceptional and mesmerizingly mysterious tragicomic black-and-white universe, washing away the borders between life and death, real and unreal in order to tell a story about purified love and inescapable sacrifice. Through a humorous otherworldly approach to the past, the film shapes an imaginary history, reminding audience there is a transcendental side of everyday life.”

The winner of the audience documentary award was Lithuanian film "The Woman and the Glacier" directed by Audrius Stonis.
