Riga International Film Festival 2021 announces winners

The Riga International Film Festival (RIGA IFF) ended on Sunday October 24, and announced its winners in all categories.

From the nine films in the RIGA IFF Feature Film Competition, the main award went to Andrius Blaževičius’ “Runner” – an intense story of a woman racing against time to find her lover.

The Feature Competition jury statement reads: “The film stood out in the competition as a remarkable accomplishment and impressive exploration of the relationship between mental health, empathy, and technology through a nail-biting urban journey. Additionally, this film’s complex and layered lead performance will stay with us for a long time”.

The festival is screening the winning film one more time on Monday, 25 October at 19:00 in the RIGA IFF online cinema.

All winners can be seen on Riga IFF's website.
