Il Black Nights Film Festival di Tallinn annuncia la line-up completa della selezione ufficiale
The Wedding Day di Wojtek Smarzowski

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Nineteen films will be screened in competition, with three out of competition, during the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival’s 25th-anniversary edition, set to run from 12-28 November in Tallinn and Tartu, Estonia. The full programme will be announced at the start of November.

“When we began the Black Nights Film Festival 25 years ago, we didn’t even have cinemas to screen our films in,” said festival director Tiina Lokk. “It’s vitally important, in these challenging times for the culture business, to make sure that film fans continue to visit cinemas and have that essential experience. The best way to do this is surely to show them the very best, the most provocative and the most inspiring films that world cinema has to offer.”
