Latvian May 4 film marathon to be streamed worldwide

The traditional Latvian Film Marathon of the National Film Centre (NKC) on May 4 will take place online on the filmas.lv portal for the second year, NKC said April 20.

A special screening of films will be held throughout the day, and it will begin at 11:00 local time of each country where it is streamed, following time zones around the globe.

Due to the constraints of the emergency, the May 4 Latvian Film Marathon was organized on the filmas.lv portal a year ago in cooperation with the Culture Systems Information Centre (KISC) as an online program, with nearly 9,000 people viewing it at various times, not only in Latvia but in a total of 63 countries from New Zealand to the US West Coast.

This year, as the pandemic continues, the film marathon will be re-created in a similar manner,  the festival program will be organized in successive impressions, each film will be available for viewing during a specific session just on the day, following the time zones of each country.

Everywhere in the world, the marathon will start on May 4 at 11:00 (local time) with an animation for children. Detailed program and schedule is to follow at the end of April on NKC website.
