And the winners are...



During a meeting on March 25th, our Jury consisting of film professionals, academic lecturers and representatives of the tourism field decided which productions will be bestowed with an award in the separate categories.

44 productions from 21 countries competed for the biggest prize for a promotional tourism production GRAND PRIX. Everybody who’s participated in such competition or festival knows that their success strongly depends on their competitors’ power and this year, I assure you, the competition was monstrous. The new trends in tourism marketing were clear – productions with plot. While in past years’ editions these types of productions were an exception, this year the main fight was between interesting and provocative stories about destinations and products. Exceptional creative decisions, inspiring messages, provocative and challenging – they make you want to pack your suitcase!

The competition for GRAND PRIX this year was tough, however there was one production that stood out for everybody the moment they saw it. “Insiders Guide to Riga” with producer - Riga Tourism Development Bureau was a production that undoubtedly had to gain the title Best Promotional Tourism Film of 2019.

Mr. Guntars Grinvalds – Board Member of Riga Tourism Development Bureau accepted the award and expressed his gratitude by welcoming everybody to “hit some balls in Riga”.
