The films Bille, Foam at the Mouth, Homo Novus, The Criminal Excellence Fund as well as The Mover have been nominated as the best feature films for the annual Lielais Kristaps film award, organizers told the press October 3.
Meanwhile in the documentary section nominations went to Baltic Tribes, Bridges of Time, Mērija's Journey, as well as D is for Division and To Be Continued.
A total of 58 films were submitted to the award. The works will be judged by an international jury and the winners will be named November 12.
A bumper crop of state-funded centenary films should make the competition particularly fierce this year, but of course there are privately funded flicks appearing as well.
