Pupils are invited to take part in „Rīgas kino” project
„Rīgas kino” is one of The European Capital of Culture events where 240 pupils will shoot 48 short films about Riga in 12 various masterclasses.
What happens in Riga suburbs? How the locals see their area? How the local youth spend their days in suburbs? „Rīgas kino” searches for answers to those questions and captures it in such permanent form as a film. Latvian film professionals will work together with pupils by putting together experience and a fresh perspective from the young people's side. „Rīgas kino” will introduce them to Riga cultural environment while working hand-in-hand with professionals.
The newly made films will be screened at open-air location in August, 2014, alongside with the early age films and film magazines about Riga. The best authors will receive awards on 30 September, 2014, at „Splendid Palace”.
