Acclaimed Latvian animation ‘Away’ at the RIGA IFF Opening Night (Tickets on sale!)
We are delighted to announce that the opening film of the RIGA IFF on October 17 will be ‘Away’ – feature debut of the gifted young Latvian animator Gints Zilbalodis. This film is currently being praised by audiences and critics alike at the prestigious Annecy International Animated Film Festival.
The artist and director attracts attention as a one-man band: everything – screenplay, animation of the characters and backgrounds, editing, composing, sound design, and production – was done solely by him over three and a half years. Find more about ‘Away’ here.
The Opening Night of the festival will be special as an exclusive opportunity to participate at the National premiere of ‘Away’, to meet its author and the RIGA IFF’s representatives, as well as to enjoy the festive atmosphere of this event. There is a limited amount of tickets available already!
