Great films are great because they never get old. Just like everything else great . Without it our life would be a transient rush to an end. That is why it’s important to stop, give in, and enjoy.

From the very beginning, in “Valmiermuižas alus” brewery culture and art have been held in a great honor and from time to time small amounts of festivity beer has been brewed dedicated to specific
events. This year we’ve brewed a special tribute to the National Film Festival “Lielais Kristaps” and the first cinema in Latvia constructed specially for watching movies – “The Royal Vio”(1901). It’s fruity in taste by using special ale yeast and design is inspired by Art Nouveau. We are happy that guests of Riga’s International film festival also will have an opportunity to enjoy this taste.

We as Lux Express value good entertainment! Riga International Film Festival is a possibility for everyone to experience art on the big screen and we are glad to help people from further destinations get here to enjoy it together with us!

This is the second year for Riga International Film Festival and we are delighted to be able to continue our loyal partnership providing the festival’s organizers with official transport of the highest standards. We are proud to be part of such an important cultural event of international reach and always be of help to film professionals from around the world. We are especially delighted to see the festival include a program of Nordic films, which will also showcase brilliant examples of cinematic achievement from Sweden, Volvo’s home country. We strongly suggest you to take your chance and savour the best of European cinema in Riga.

Every creative manifestation is longing for acknowledgement and appreciation. We, at Hannu PRO, are honoured to provide support to the Riga International Film program makers and participants, and always are delighted to find new creative works and aspiring talents appearing in the complex film arts industry. Participation in such international forum is an incredible opportunity to grow and mature as there ever are new heights beyond each horizon. We wish every festival participant even more commitment and perseverance in implementing their ideas in the future!

Film, like cycling, allows us to discover new horizons and experience a new dimension to perhaps already known and ordinary things. As an international company, Sixt appreciates cultural endeavours, either local or foreign, and is delighted to be present when authors and creators meet the public.
See you at the Riga International Film Festival!

Films and animations of high artistic quality are a way to teach children values, language and social skills and encourage creative thinking. Today, taking kids to cinema is another chance for parents to spend some quality time with their children and later discuss the experience and share their views on the film.



The festival likes plants! A lot!
