European Film Academy arrives in Riga for visit
06-03-2012 A+ A-
Tomorrow, March 7, the foundation Riga|2014 will welcome the representatives of European Film Award organisers. In a one-day working visit, the European Film Academy Director Marion Döring and the EFA Productions Executive Producer Jürgen Biesinger will arrive in Riga.

Every two years, the European Film Award ceremony is held in Berlin, while during the other years, the place of activity is chosen separately. In 2014, Riga as the European Capital of Culture has evoked the interest of award organisers as a possible place for the award nomination ceremony. During the introductory visit, the representatives of the academy will visit the places of activities, as well as will meet with the Minister for Culture of the Republic of Latvia, Žanete Jaunzeme-Grende and Vice Mayor of Riga Andris Ameriks.

The European Film Award nomination ceremony hosts about one and a half thousand guests in relation to the film industry – academy members, directors, actors, whose activities and received nominations in 17 categories are displayed by more than 250 international mass media sources.

The greatest mass media and public attention is drawn to the lifelong contribution, received so far by such recognisable names as Judi Dench, Sean Connery and Roman Polanski. Up to now, the ceremonies have taken place in London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Warsaw and Copenhagen. In 2010, the European Film, called also “The European Oscar”, award was presented in Tallinn, this year it will be Malta.
