Riga International Short Film Festival 2ANNAS is the oldest and one of the leading short film festivals in the Baltic States.

The festival seeks out and introduces the audience to innovative modes of audio-visual communication from all over the world. The goal of the festival is to popularize European and World cinema among the Latvian audience and explore the evolution and trends of Baltic film art from a global perspective.

2ANNAS is proud of its status as a high-quality film explorer. 2ANNAS exists in a world where short films are not only the first step to a feature film but a deliberate decision that results in a superior piece of art.

Another 2ANNAS characteristic next to its ground-breaking content is its unique shape: the festival is famous for wild parties in unusual locations, free-spirited atmosphere, and creative expressions.

The winners of International Short Film Competition and International Mid-length Competition will receive the "Golden Anna" statuette, the winner of Baltic Short Film and categories such as 'Best Animation', 'Best Documentary', etc, will receive the “Gypsum Anna” statuette as well as prizes from the festival's sponsors.

All films must be produced in the time period of the last two years [2018-2020]

With submission fee - Early bird 5 Eur, from 10.09.2019. late bird 10 Eur

Our competition is focused on the search for a new language, themes, and means of expression in the contemporary cinema by using both short and mid-length format of all genres. We are looking for films and directors that are pushing both artistic and technical boundaries in their work.

This year festival continues to offer the mid-length film competition program, giving an opportunity for the filmmakers to submit 30-60min long films, that often get rejected by film festivals because of their unusual length.
