Film industry in Slovenia emerged in 1946 and saw a considerable raise between 1995 and 2015.

Slovenia has equally strong fiction and documentary cinema that will be represented here in Riga.
The programme is made in cooperation with the National Film Centre of Latvia and the Slovenian Film Centre.
