Cinema is one of the most powerful means of mass communication. As it has developed, film-makers have also paid a lot of attention to other media like the press, TV and social networks. The subject of this year's series includes media coverage of cinema and the potential of media to influence society, and even history.
The screenings and lectures are made possible thanks to the support of the US Embassy in Latvia. Eight screenings of US films coupled with expert lectures on the related subjects are planned for 2019 and 2020. The series will include films about television, films about the origins of social networking, as well as films that showcase aspects of investigative journalism.
