The fifth edition of Experimental Film Festival  Process will take place from 17 till 21 May 2023 in Riga, Latvia.

Organized by the artist-run filmlab Baltic Analog Lab, the festival is dedicated to the diverse analogue cinema practices employed by adventurous audiovisual artists from around the world. The programme comprises film screenings, live performances, talks, discussions, parties, as well as a two day expanded cinema workshop on May 13 – 14.


This year the theme of the festival is “Noise Spectrum”, thinking about the different shapes of noise as an audial, visual, mental and social phenomenon – a sign that can indicate brutal chaos but also a fearless disruption of an existing violent situation.


In the framework of SPECTRAL project, this year's festival focus will be on expanded cinematic art practice showcasing expanded cinema works  in three curated programmes as well as at the opening ceremony of the festival.

Along with focus programmes and events, the festival has three non-competitive film programmes for which everyone working with analogue film in any kind of unconventional way is welcome to submit their work. We will be happy to screen 16mm or Super 8mm analogue prints, if available. Apart from films, submissions of expanded cinema performances are welcome as well.

The works will be selected by guest-curators as well as festival team curators. 

Submissions are open until 31st March 2023 via Film Freeway website.


The festival is organized by Baltic Analog Lab
