Filming locations

Latvia offers filming locations

Latvia offers many opportunities for foreign directors interested in film projects in Latvia, such as grant co-financing from National Film Centre and Riga Film Fund and excellent filming locations. The Riga Film Fund also supports foreign film filming everywhere in Latvia, but filmmakers may apply for an additional co-financing percentage if it takes place in the capital.

Many successful international projects have been launched; for example, Riga became a shooting place for the German mini-series ‘Sisi.’ In 2021, 195 registered film producers and studios were registered in Latvia.

Currently, LIAA offers a co-financing program aimed to attract foreign filmmakers in documental, animation, TV, and many other genres. The second round of applications will start from autumn, 2022. Filmmakers interested in the program can register through business.gov.lv. The total financing available for 2022 is 793773 EUR.
