FESTIVALS: Tallinn Black Nights Hosts European Discovery Directors at Discovery Campus


    TALLINN: The Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival (PÖFF) is working with the European Film Academy (EFA) and FIPRESCI to promote directors nominated as European Discovery as part of PÖFF’s new Discovery Campus, starting from November 2021.

    The EFA and FIPRESCI bestow the European Discovery Award – Prix FIPRESCI upon the best Debut Film every year within the framework of the European Film Awards. This new collaboration will see the nominees join a dedicated sub-programme at PÖFF’s Discovery Campus, as well as allow the directors to participate in existing talent strands.

    The Black Nights Discovery Campus is organised by PÖFF and Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event (I@T&BE). A new banner unites the established talent programmes Black Nights Stars, Music Meets Film and Black Room with new initiatives Future To Film and Still Meets Film. The 2021 event marks the 25th anniversary of Black Nights and the 20th anniversary of Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event.

    Triin Tramberg will serve as Managing Director of the Discovery Campus, with Graziella Bildesheim overseeing the programme content as Discovery Campus International Consultant.
