Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event kick off in one week!









20 projects have been selected for the largest ever lineup of the Baltic Event Co-Production Market, taking place on 29 November - 1 December.

The 16 projects in the main selection are accompanied by two projects from Focus Region Flanders, Belgium, and two additional projects in the pilot First Stop Estonia section.







On the 29th of November Storytek Forum will once again bring you insightful discussions on the future content models as well as big scale IP business, among other topics such as SheTech and investor issues in the content industry. 

There will also be a demo session where the teams from Storytek's first cohort will be showcasing the hard work they've been doing for the past 10 weeks. 



On the 28th of November you won't want to miss a spectacular fashion show taking place at the Tallinn Kultuurikatel where striking film costumes and music meet Estonian design and modern dance in the first ever Black Nights Catwalk.

An exhibition featuring costumes and set pieces from different Estonian films will also open.






As part of Estonian Presidency of the EU Council, Estonia will hold a visionary conference entitled "Pictured futures: connecting content, tech & policy in audiovisual Europe" on 27-28 November 2017 in Tallinn.

The conference aims at taking a broader view of the European audiovisual sector beyond provisions in the Audiovisual Media Services Directive, funding schemes of film funds or the MEDIA programme. Discussions will include where the European audiovisual market is going long-term, where the EU should strive to and how new business models based on algorithms and big data analytics are impacting the industry and our culture more broadly.

Held in co-operation with the Black Nights FF and Industry@Tallinn, the speakers' lineup includes Jeremy Darroch (Sky, CEO), Barak Berkowitz (DIrector Of Operations, MIT), Efe Çakarel (CEO of Mubi) and the Academy Award winning producer Lord David Puttnam.







Estonian National Symphony Orchestra and PÖFF presents:
Regular Crisis - Multimedia Cantata On Global Economy

This multimedia project by the video and performance artist Marina Landia combines video projections with a large symphony orchestra. Movie reflects the ‘mental state’ of the most influential figures in the global economy. Tensions skilfully conveyed with live music will create amazing effects, offering a rather unusual perspective on the current state and potential future of economy. Estonian National Symphony Orchestra will be conducted by Kristjan Järvi, who has recorded the soundtrack for the high-budget German TV series Babylon Berlin, that screens at Black Nights.

The concert will begin with a panel discussion of outstanding visionaries from Estonia and elsewhere.







Now in its sixth year, Music Meets Films (formerly called Estonian Film Showcase) will run from Nov 30 to Dec 1 and features talks and mentorship sessions dedicated to subjects related Film Scoring.

Together with acclaimed music supervisor Maggie Rodford (The King’s SpeechKubo and the Two Strings, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), brilliant composer Tom Player (The HobbitGame of Thrones), Nick Leonard and Chris Brown (global music agency West One with clients like BBC or TV series House of Cards and Mad Men) we’ll tackle current trends in film scoring, live orchestration, tips on how to make good demos and the role of music libraries in film scoring.
