Nisimazine started a new film journalism workshop in Tallinn! During the November 26th to December 1st 12 lucky participants had a chance to cover PÖFF – Black Nights Film Festival in Tallinn (Estonia).
12 participants from Estonia, Finland and Lithuania interested in journalism, photography and videoblogging were selected to join our editorial team.
About the PÖFF – Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival
Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival (PÖFF) is a unique event combining a feature film festival, three sub-festivals as well as film and co-production markets. The festival aims to present a comprehensive selection of world cinema in all its diversity with the emphasis on European films, providing a friendly atmosphere for interaction between the audience, Estonian filmmakers and their colleagues from abroad.
In the main program, there are 3 main official competitions and several non-competitive selections. The competition includes a selection of international films from Europe and Asia, a selection of regional films from Baltic and a selection of independent films from US and Canada. Non-competing programs include retrospectives of featured directors, special themed programs (e.g. sports, human rights), focus on different national cinemas, selection of feel-good movies and the multi-awarded festival titles. Fashion documentaries, midnight and cult films and several others specially conceived programs are also on the regular festival menu!
The program of this year’s PÖFF is still to be anounced, but judging from the previous editions it will be designed to satisfy the tastes of cinephiles of most diverse profiles!
