Black Nights Film Festival introduces the lineup of the new programme Rebels With A Cause


To See a Woman

The new section, dedicated to films that are experimental or unconventional in form or style, is a competition programme with an audience award. The first edition will see 10 films, with one having its world and another its international premiere.

The selection includes the world premiere of Riga (Take One) by the French director Siegfried, a free-style composition about passion and fine arts, studied through the perspective of four women in Riga, Latvia. The rhythm of the films is based on the rules of a jazz partition.

Mònica Rovira Herrero presents her film To See a Woman, an intense chronicle of a relationship in which she also plays the protagonist, that will have its international premiere at the Black Nights Film Festival.

The programme also includes the restored version of Jean-Luc Godard’s The Rise & Fall Of a Small Film Company, the Venice-premiering The Wild Boys directed by Bertrand Mandico, the landscape-observation essay The New Wild: Life in the Abandoned Lands by director Christopher Thompson, the Russian satire Ice Hole directed by Andrey Silvestrov. The montage of magical moments in other films, depicting cinema-going in Have You Seen My Movie? by director Paul Anton Smith and the The Little Match Girl by director Alejo Moguillansky, who intertwines musical rhythms and elements  into the visual storytelling of the film.

According to the programme’s coordinator Javier Garcia Puerto the programme consists of works of filmmakers who bring up new perspectives by challenging cinematic borders. „Rebels With a Cause“ will present edgy films made by bold filmmakers, who nurture the field of cinematic language by pushing the limits and reaching new boundaries in the art of storytelling with sound and image. While sticking to the narrative they bend the rules and twist perceptions, and by doing so they make us as an audience face a challenge. Audiences will also be able to express their emotions by selecting their favourite film as part of a collective jury.”

About Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival

Started in 1997, the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival has grown into one of the biggest film festivals in Northern Europe and busiest regional industry platforms, hosting more than 1000 guests and industry delegates and over 160 journalists. The festival screens around 250 features and more than 300 shorts and animations and sees an attendance of 80 000 people annually. In 2017 the festival was covered in 71 languages with a potential global media audience of over 1.1 billion people.

As of 2014 the festival holds the FIAPF accreditation for holding an international competition programme which puts the festival into the so- called A-category of film festivals, alongside other 14 festivals in the world (including Cannes, Berlinale, Venice, Karlovy Vary, San Sebastian, Shanghai, Tokyo etc).
