Experimental film festival Process will take place from 18th to 22nd of August 2021 in Riga, Latvia. The festival is dedicated to analog cinema, celebrating the physical medium of film in all its personal, adventurous and uncompromising forms. The first of a kind in Baltics, for the fourth time Process will provide five days of film screenings, expanded cinema performances, lectures, discussions as well as a two day expanded cinema workshop on the weekend before the festival on August 14-15.
This year the overall theme of the festival is "End Of The World", reflecting both on different kinds of loss and a possibility of something new.
Along with special focus programmes and events, the festival has three non-competitive short film programmes for which everyone working with analog film in any kind of unconventional way is welcome to submit their work related to our this year's theme.
Process is organised by Baltic Analog Lab which is an artist-run film laboratory based in Riga, in collaboration with guest-curators and artists differing each year.
This year the programmes will be selected by Erwin van't Hart from Rotterdam IFF and Tommaso Isabella – a freelance curator of Filmmaker IFF (Milan), as well as Lāsma Bērtule and Ieva Balode – members of Baltic Analog Lab.
