The short subject film "Riga 2014. Summer", dedicated to Riga as the European Capital of Culture, has received the bronze award at the Baku International Tourism Film Festival.

The film was made by the Latvian Tourism Development Agency in cooperation with the Latvian information agency LETA.

"We are truly glad about yet another successful venture in promoting Riga as the European Capital of Culture via films. The international community's interest about "Riga 2014" emerges slowly piece by piece throughout many years, and the Tourism Development Agency has put a lot of effort into it," the authors of the project say.

The two-and-a-half minute reel won the bronze award in the category "Culture & Tradition". The video was produced in collaboration with the creative team from LETA.
