After a roller-coaster year, covering festivals and films of all shapes and sizes throughout Europe, Nisimazine is almost reaching its final instalment for the year (one final surprise still will be arriving soon).
Nisimazine Tallinn, the prodigy of the team covering the PÖFF | Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.
We’ve been offered an opportunity to catch up on the films that have slipped through our fingers so far, to make sure we tick off all the items on our list before we can start the one for next year. But we were also introduced to some fine pieces of filmmaking that were only exposed under the moonlight of Tallinn.
Here’s a list for you: compelling films, nuanced and analytical critiques, plenty of eye-candy imagery infused with the spirit of the festival.
Hope you’ll tick them all off as soon as you’ve browsed Nisimazine Tallinn 2013. Enjoy

FOCUS ON THE EAST OF THE WEST COMPETITION
After a week of creative gestation our brand new Nisimazine Special Karlovy Vary is seeing the daylight and need your (socially networked) help and support to get acquainted with the world.
Now in its third edition, Nisimazine Special (Venice Orizzonti, Rotterdam Shorts and now Karlovy Vary East of the West) is quickly establishing itself as a complementary and enriching addition to our Film Journalism Workshops. Unlike the latter, our Specials are realized in collaboration with our Alumni thus offering an opportunity for them to remain actively engaged with Nisi Masa.
The e-book you're holding in your virtual end follows up and concludes our KVIFF coverage we had started while in Karlovy Vary with our newsletter series (archived here) and provide you with a comprehensive coverage of the East of the West Competition. The team responsible for this edition was composed by 5 writers and 1 photographer coming from Romania, Italy, Yemen/Scotland and Slovakia.
We hope you will enjoy the reading and share it with others.
