Tallinn Black Nights Goes To Cannes Projects Announced

Black Nights Film Festival (PÖFF) and Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event are proud to announce the five projects taking part in Tallinn Black Nights Goes To Cannes this summer. 

For the first time Black Nights Film Festival joins the well established Marché du Film showcase "Goes to Cannes", presenting 5 international film projects in post-production stage in Cannes this July. “Black Nights Goes to Cannes” is part of the PÖFF’s 25th birthday celebrations, in a year where PÖFF’s industry platform Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event also celebrates its 20th anniversary.

According to the head of Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event Marge Liiske the possibility to show the project in Cannes will open several new doors for the film and the creators: “Marché du Film is one of the largest market events in the world as there are more than 10,000 film professionals looking for new ideas, projects and partners. Being part of the event could create new connections and fruitful cooperation for the long run, not only regarding one project.”

Black Nights Festival Director Tiina Look added, “We’re very excited to bring our wolf pack to Cannes and the Marché du Film this summer. It’s a very special year for Black Nights, our 25th birthday, and also for Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event, which turns 20. From small beginnings, we’ve grown together into an international meeting place for film, with a global outlook and reach. Our whole team is delighted that such a talented selection of international filmmakers have chosen to join our showcase and join our pack, with projects from as far afield as Georgia and Belgium, alongside films from our own backyard. We can't wait to let them out into the wild.”

The projects will be presented onsite on Saturday July 10 at Palais K from 2:15 to 4:15pm, as well as screening online for industry professionals around the world.

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.

Black Nights Film Festival 16 Nov - 2 Dec
PÖFF Shorts 20 Nov - 25 Nov
Just Film 16 Nov - 2 Dec
