Student Job Market

A student job market will take place for the first time during the Baltic Animation Meet-Up.

Students meet producers to present their portfolios and producers share their upcoming projects that could use an extra pair of hands. The Student Job Market provides a very straightforward way to incorporate new talent into the animation industry and expand the job market. 

This is also the chance for recently graduated students to pitch their ideas and themselves to producers in an attempt to start up new collaborations. 

As the event is for all three Baltic countries, students have the opportunity to try their luck internationally. Furthermore this is a first step towards potential co-production projects between countries. Students, meet the main players in the industry and secure your work experience! Producers, take the opportunity to see your future colleagues face to face!

If you have any questions, please contact Project Manager Lauma Kaudzīte (lauma@rigaiff.lv). 

Entry upon registration. Deadline for applications: 6 September 2020, 23:59.
