One of the oldest, most opulent and beautiful cinemas in Europe. Every film screening and event held here turns into an unforgettable occasion, which is why this is where the RIGA IFF Opening event, the Feature Film Competition, film premieres, the Award ceremony, and most screenings are held. It’s also where you’ll find the Festival Information Centre!
The underground floor of Splendid Palace is a lively meeting place where film industry professionals and film buffs meet both like- and divergent-minded people via lectures, presentations and discussions.
The National Library of Latvia, also known as Castle of Light, is a subject of constant debate and one of the most noticeable buildings in the city’s skyline. It’s also where RIGA IFF will be showing its ARCHITECT’S CUT film programme, inviting viewers to direct their attention to an art form that affects everyone.
Riga International Film Festival (RIGA IFF) strives to offer complete accessibility, sharing the belief that cinema is an art form that can be experienced collectively and socially. The festival team has taken several steps to ensure that people with disabilities could take part in the festival.
