The 24th PÖFF will be a hybrid event
Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival is moving on with preparations to hold physical screenings while the international industry and press will be granted virtual access to films and events regardless of their location.
PÖFF side-festival KinoFF will take place for the second time in three cities in the prominently Russian-speaking region Ida-Virumaa in Eastern Estonia. The region is on the eastern border with Russia, thus marking the eastern border of the European Union with Russia. Ida-Virumaa is also the historic centre of the country’s controversial oil shale mining industry - the central source of energy for the country.
Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival saves forests with Single.Earth, a rising Estonian greentech startup
Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival will invest one euro from every film submission fee collected to combat intensive clear-cuts in Estonia. The platform created by the Estonian startup Single.Earth gives money to forest owners for switching from clear-cutting to alternative forest management methods.
