Riga International Film Festival
September is the month for the largest film festival in Riga, the International Film Festival 'Arsenals'. The festival is a highly respected old film festival with a history that goes back to Soviet times, when 'Cinema Days '86' showed a variety of films otherwise not accessible to the public. The festival in its current incarnation includes a number of competitions and retrospective screenings.
This year, Jørgen Leth was invited to Riga with his newest film, 'Erotic Man' represented in main competition. In addition, Leth was given a special honorary award for his cinematic work in general.
