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.
