Riga Summer School / Find, Feel, Film. cover


To learn about documentary filmmaking and produce videos about Riga neighborhoods.


If you are studying communication, journalism, media, public relations, advertising or another creative field and are interested in film, photo and video, we’ve got something exciting for you. We are looking for 25 hard-working, eager and fun students from the Baltics, Europe and all over the world, who want to come to Riga this summer and produce a short video or multimedia clip about the diversity of the Latvian capital, thus helping us discover the true identity of Riga. Officially we are calling it the summer school, but in reality it will be less of a school in the traditional sense and more of a week long creative production studio, where we will all be learning to produce short videos and share our passion for film. Any kind of ideas for short videos would fit – from factually journalistic to creatively artistic, as long as they tell a story about Riga identity – it is really up to you. The Latvian Government will be awarding up to 10 scholarships for foreign students to participate in Riga Summer School 2014! We will start accepting applications in mid-February. Students from the following 39 countries will be eligible to apply for the scholarship: Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Croatia, Estonia, Italy, Israel, Kazakhstan, Cyprus, South Korea, China, United Kingdom, Lithuania, Mexico, Moldova, Mongolia, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Finland, Spain, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Hungary, Uzbekistan, United States, Austria, Denmark, Island, Japan, Norway, Slovakia, Switzerland, Germany and Sweden.
