Latvian NewsThe catalogue of Latvian films for 2005/2006 indicatesan encouraging development in Latvian film – graduallyincreasing film production and a developing filmenvironment.The year 2005 witnessed the largest number of filmssimultaneously in production since the independence of1991: 5 full-length fiction films, 2 full-length animationfilms and a number of documentaries and shortanimation films.The year 2006 will be the year of Latvian filmpremieres – from films by acclaimed art-house moviedirectors (Laila Pakalniņa’s The Hostage, Viesturs Kairišs’The Dark Deer) to a historical mainstream movie (AigarsGrauba’s Defenders of Riga) and animation films for theyoung movie goers (The Three Musketeers, Lotte fromGadgetville), as well as a debut in fiction by the talenteddocumentary film director Juris Poškus.With growing state support for film, Latvian producersare able to attract greater financing from European funds(Eurimages and MEDIA Plus), and operate internationallywith more success – almost all of the films in productionare international co-productions. A regular co-productionpartner for Latvian film is Estonia, and this fact has led tothe idea of establishing a Baltic Co-production Fund – aplan that has to be further developed and implemented.There is more good news: Laila Pakalniņa’s short featureWater, has been selected for the Berlin Film Festival.The Film Law is on its way to being adopted. The RigaFilm Museum is in the process of changing its locationfrom outskirts of Riga to the very centre of the OldTown, where it will form the basis of the yet to be firmlyestablished Cinematheque of Latvia.INTROThe Baltic DimensionThe year 2005 was a successful one for Balticcollaboration – the platform of Baltic Films. 2006 lookspromising as well.In September 2006, Latvia will become a regularhost of the Baltic Sea Forum for Documentaries, thuscelebrating the 10th anniversary of the event whichstarted on the beautiful island of Bornholm in Denmark,and then moved to the Baltic countries, where it hasnow become the most important yearly internationalvenue for documentary film under the auspices of BalticFilms.The Baltic Sea Forum is a documentary project market,co-organised by the National Film Centre of Latvia,Baltic Films and the European Documentary Network.It brings together Baltic, Polish, Russian, Belarusianand Ukrainian producers and the commissioning editorsand representatives of film funds from all over Europe,looking for new and exciting documentary projects fromthe Baltic region.Over the last 10 years, the Forum has been godfatheringprize-winning films from such acclaimeddirectors as Herz Frank, Ivars Seleckis, Audrius Stonys,Arunas Matelis and others.Contact and information:;www.mediadesk.lvIn 2005, Baltic Films and Tallinn University becameco-founders of a project that is designed to positivelychange the Baltic audiovisual landscape – the BalticFilm and Media School.
