Film market development in Northern Europe

Investment and Development Agency of Latvia (LIAA) is pleased to invite you to the Magnetic Latvia Film Conference taking place on 18–19 October 2019, in Riga.

During the first day of the Conference, dedicated to film market development in Northern Europe, speakers will address the challenges and factors, which relatively small countries should consider for international marketing, entering major global markets and highlighting the value of local production on the global arena.

On the second day of the Conference, we invite our guests to make a fabulous experience and enduring memories on locations tour – Latvia’s geographic position has made it a bone of contention for various empires, but we are proudly keeping alive our cultural diversity, polishing our historical values and adoring our various landscapes.


For several years, Investment and Development Agency of Latvia has been actively supporting Latvia’s presence on the international markets and participation of Latvian filmmakers at the markets and festivals. As the main national export body, LIAA has a great position facilitating the professional presence of Latvian filmmakers in the film B2B business.

To introduce the world with Latvia’s innovations and the best of technology, literature, art, science, etc., the brand Magnetic Latvia has been created.

Magnetic Latvia initiative to organize a Film Conference during the Riga International Film Festival 2019 is another step in positioning Latvia as a B2B location on the international market. Furthermore, LIAA opens an opportunity to prepare Latvian and regional filmmakers for the markets, therewith ensuring the efficiency of their market attendance and raising their business success.

The Film Conference will take place in Riga – the Capital of Magnetic Latvia, the largest Baltic city, empire of Art Nouveau buildings, charming wooden residencies and dreamy medieval old town at its heart.

We are expecting the attendance of a number of renowned figures of world cinema as well as young, talented and passionate filmmakers. We look forward to welcoming you in Riga!
