BALTIC ANALOG LAB: Latvian experimental films

In the programme films made by Baltic Analog Lab (Riga, Latvia) members will be presented – made either independently or as part of workshops organized by the lab – along with the results of a 16mm film workshop held during MIEFF. It will be a chance to see what is going on in the small but exciting Latvian contemporary DIY film scene, and what happens when people for the first time physically encounter analog film.

Baltic Analog Lab is an artist collective and filmlab based in Riga, Latvia. It was founded in 2016. Uniting filmmakers and photographers interested in analog film and photography, Baltic Analog Lab aims to produce, teach and inspire an audience by providing a space for creation, learning and teaching. It is equipped for shooting, processing, editing and screening of 16mm and 8mm film, and also for analog photography. There is one darkroom, one studio area for work and one dark screening space. The high focus of the lab is education and collaboration; this is maintained by regular workshops led by BAL members and foreigner guests. It also includes film screenings and expanded cinema events. The main curatorial event of the lab is the experimental film festival 'Process', which occurs during March in Riga. There are other regular events organised by the lab, where a crucial emphasis is put on interdisciplinary collaboration between analog filmmakers, musicians, poets, dancers and other artists.
