The newest Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finish children films will be seen at the 4th International Children Film Festival “Berimor’s Cinema” that will take place from March 14-20, 2005 at the Riga Congress Hall. The main target group of the festival are children from 7-14 years old. The films will be evaluated by a special jury of children and the best film will receive Berimor’s Big Pillow from the jury. The favourite film of the whole audience will be awarded the Berimor’s Small Pillow. In 2003 the pug-dog Berimor Bregovic became the honoured chairman of the jury and since then the festival is named after him. Thanks to the old and rich children cinema traditions also this year the main part of the festival program consists of Nordic films.
