The members of the jury of both competition programs of the festival - Artdocfest and Baltic Focus, started to evaluate the works presented at the IDFF Artdocfest/Riga. They will see films on the big screen.

The jury of the Baltic Focus program - remotely: Alina Rudnichkaya in Prague, Massimo Tria in Pisa and Tue Steen Müller in Copenhagen.
As previously reported, the festival is being held under epidemiological restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The festival is organized "with home delivery": the festival team brings the film to a spectator or a limited group of “one bubble/one household” spectators. Size of the group will depend on the regulations and restrictions in the region, but we promise – those will be excited viewers! We will screen for a large family at the country-side, we will screen for a team of cooks in their empty restaurant, we will screen for prisoners and youth commune inhabitants etc.
The closing ceremony is taking place on May 3rd at 10 p.m. and the winners and prizes are announced. The broadcast will be shown on the "Current Time" TV channel and on the channel's Youtube page.
Screenings of the films for the wide audience in the cinema hall, during which a real meeting with the author of the film will take place, is planned to be organized in the second half of August, which will be reported separately.
