BALTIC SEA REGION FILM HISTORY CONFERENCE
Baltic Sea Region Film History Conference is an annual international event; it aims to bring together film scholars, researchers, who analyze the film history of the Baltic Sea Region. Also, the conference seeks to share the insights of the latest findings and to promote film cultures of this yet often unacknowledged region.
The first conference was held in 2014 in Tallinn (Estonia) by Estonian Film Museum, Film Archive of the National Archives of Estonia and Tallinn University Baltic Film and Media School. Later, other organizations joined Estonian Film Institute, Baltic Audiovisual Archival Council (BAAC) and Tallinn University Centre of Excellence in Media Innovation and Digital Culture (MEDIT).
From 2019, the conference became mobile, and Vilnius (Lithuania) was the first host of this moving conference. The conference was organized by Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, Media Education and Research Center NGO „Meno avilys“, together with the partners: Vilnius Documentary Film Festival, Film Archive of the National Archives of Estonia, Latvian Academy of Culture and strategic partner Lithuanian Council for Culture.
The VI Baltic Film History Conference will be held on 14-15 October in Riga, Latvia. It is organized by Latvian Academy of Culture in partnership with Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre and Film Archive of the National Archives of Estonia. It will take place at the National Film School of the Latvian Academy of Culture.
