The RIGA IFF competitions are an integral part of the RIGA IFF programme and constitute the biggest film celebration in Latvia. The competitions form the core of the festival's quest for bold and innovative cinema. This season, more than 2,000 entries were submitted to the RIGA IFF competitions.
After a rigorous selection process, 84 films in seven categories were selected to be judged by the festival's jury of international and local industry experts. The jury will select the winners of the Feature Film Competition from the Baltic Sea Region and the Nordic countries, the Best International and National Short Film, and the Best Baltic Music Video. Additional awards will be given to feature-length, series, and short film projects featured in the RIGA IFF FORUM, the festival's industry section.
