Years running: 4 (since 2019)


Comedy Short Film Festival.


BABA YAGA - She is very scary, not pretty and rather shallow. We overturn this fact and want to show it in bright light, creating a laugh around her place of residence. A short film will take place in a small village, in a place where is the only white mountains are in the Baltic states. The festival will be held in the open air, where selected comedy short films will be shown.

Baba Yaga Comedy Short Film Festival is a brand new festival. We hope you will join us in a days full of fun and endless laughs! We will highlight comedy short films with the goal of screening the best comedic content from around the world for a wide audience! Our dual emphasis is on “discovering” great comedic talent with the purpose of promoting it to both the entertainment industry and the Latvian public, as well as, showcasing the works of seasoned professionals and well-known stars. We are proud to showcase, connect and promote talented comedy filmmakers from all over the world.
