As an individual department within this year’s festival the team behind the wittily titled SHORT RIGA have devised a remarkable feat – altogether three competitions of new shorts from around the world, Baltic student films and a separate category for music videos. Showcased within three respective programmes SHORT RIGA will take over the newly established small theater KINO BIZE as well as organise workshops and host an award ceremony.
We start with a close-up, and then, gradually, we start seeing the bigger, the more complex picture. And boy, is this picture indeed complex. Numerous tiny threads start enveloping the musicians, while the music develops more and more threads as well. At some point, you even realize you cannot believe your own eyes, but it’s a good thing – it means every smallest detail is constantly changing.GO TO FILM

The strategy typical to pop art, used to provide us with a dreamy and trippy interpretation of a well-known love story.GO TO FILM
