RIJA FILMS took part in the global TV market MIPCOM 2013, presenting the cooking show “Cult Food” (16 episodes x 52′), animation film programs for kids and grown-ups and a selection of documentaries. We are glad about the interest the cooking show and our animation has evoked and are looking forward to new cooperations.

“Cult Food” is a culinary TV show focusing on the gastronomic heritage of the world. Latvian chef, Martins Sirmais, is discovering the cultures of the world by traveling the globe and savoring the marvels of international cuisine. Every episode features one cult dish that characterizes the country of its origin. Having premiered on Latvian Television in the spring of 2013, the show has proven to be a huge success story, gaining the highest TV ratings of all broadcasters in Latvia for its given time slot.
