The National Film Centre of Latvia (NFC, www.nfc.lv) has announced the film grants to be awarded for 2011. Seven feature films, 11 documentaries and four animation films received funding. The total includes 130,000 lats to complete films already in production. The bigest competition was for new projects. NFC distributed only 25,000 lats for new film projects, awarding just 20% of the amount requested.
