Wondering where have all our projects gone? Here are some of the recent highlights of our past projects.

Karolvy Vary is about to kick off with our last year's International Work In Progress participant Crystal Swan opening the East of West competition and the Baltic Event Co-Production Market 2012 entry Breathing Into Marble screening also in the same programme.

Suleiman Mountain has been developed in Baltic Event's B'EST EAVE script development in 2014 and the Co-Production Market in 2015 and was presented at the International Works In Progress in 2017. The film premiered at Toronto IFF and has seen a nice festival run that includes a main prize at the Pingyao Film Festival. Read more in Variety!

The 2013 Co-production Market and 2016 International Works In Progress entry When The Trees Fall premiered at the Berlinale this year, gaining a favorable review in THR and an interview in Variety.

The most expensive Estonian film ever made, a co-production with Ireland, the UK and Belgium with Brendan Gleeson, Ciarán Hinds and other top actors voicing characters, the feature-legnth animation Captain Morten and the Spider Queen was at the Baltic Event Co-Production Market in 2012 and presented in the Works In Progress last year.

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).  

Black Nights has an umbrella structure with two sub-festivals PÖFF Shorts and youth and children's film festival Just Film taking place concurrently with the main festival,
two off-season festivals - Haapsalu Horror and Fantasy Film Festival and Tartu Love Film Festival - and a fully-fledged film industry platform Industry@Tallinn, organised jointly with the Baltic Event Co-production market.
