Kino Bize

KINO BIZE ir neliels, mājīgs kinoteātris Rīgas centrā. Mūsu programmu veido jaunas, neatkarīgi producētas filmas un video no visas pasaules, kā arī tematiski veidotas retrospekcijas, lekcijas un īpašie notikumi.


The fifth edition of RPFF will take place in April 25-29 at the cinema Kino Bize (Str. Elizabetes 37) and K.Suns (Str. Elizabetes 83/85) in Riga, Latvia.

The RPFF 2018 programme will explore the role of comedy and humour in documentary storytelling and films subjects that are humorous, witty, and life affirming and are, subsequently, empowered by comedic strategies. The title of the festival this year is "Comic Intent or How I Stopped Being Depressed by Documentaries and Learned to Laugh at Life."

The Riga Pasaules Film festival is an annual film festival that is oriented towards exploring the intersections between cinema and ethnography. It is a space where practitioners and the general public can explore various aspects of the process of making films, visualising anthropology, and capabilities of cinema to convey an experience on its own terms. The festival is held at the art-house cinema “Kino Bize” in Riga, Latvia, and its fifth edition will take place in April 25-29.
