EFP Representative

Dita Rietuma


National Film Centre of Latvia

"Being part of the EFP puts Latvia's filmmakers as well as its policy-makers in the field on the international map, and enables us to join the European effort to promote the best films and talent outside the home country. It will open new chances for networking on a truly international level that is so utterly important in the film industry."
Dita Rietuma
