Arnolds Burovs Animation classics
The Latvian animation tradition that began in the 1960s is one of the strongest areas in Latvian cinema – diverse in genre and technology, full of creative revelations. Now, in the 21st century, Latvian animation is proud of their success at international festivals and of the strength of their creative core, their thriving studios and outstanding authors.

Arnolds Burovs, who made more than 40 films, began puppet animation at the Riga Film Studio. Burovs’ vision was carried forward by director Janis Cimermanis and artist Maris Putnins, who later became the producer of many films. They founded the studio Animacijas Brigade in 1992, and cultivated the studio’s recognizable visual signature and tone – comical, sincere, adventure-filled. Animacijas Brigade (Studio AB) is one of the most tradition-rich Latvian animation studios, and their films are regularly included in international film festival programmes. They’re frequent guests at the Berlinale – Cimermanis’ film “Corrida” was in the 2012 line up, and Dace Riduzes’ films have visited the festival on three occasions: “Firefly” in 2003, and “Acorn Boy” and “Little Rudy” in 2013. In 1994, Nils Skapans’ film “Let’s Fly” received the Berlinale Crystal Bear award.
