Black Nights Film Festival (PÖFF)

Black Nights Film Festival (PÖFF) is one of the largest and most distinctive film festivals in North-Eastern Europe, and the only one in the region, which belongs among the top 15 film festivals in the world.

The festival consists of a number of different events: three full-scale sub-festivals ("Animated Dreams", "Just Film", and "Sleepwalkers") and international film industry events, which bring films and filmmakers from more than 70 countries from America to Asia to Tallinn. Everything that is happening around PÖFF is about as extensive as the festival programme itself - there are many film-themed special events (parties, concerts, exhibitions, lectures, etc.). 
 
PÖFF's film programme includes two international competition programmes presenting the freshest and most intriguing films from all over the world, from among which the international jury selects those that will be awarded at the festival's closing ceremony. Fashion Cinema deals with the hot topics of the fashion world and tells the stories of some exciting people; Gourmet Cinema joins food gourmetism and film experience; Doc@PÖFF brings the most current documentary films of the latest year to the viewer; Panorama and Forum offer an extensive overview of the past year's exotic finds and hits from other film festivals.

PÖFF takes place in Tallinn and Tartu.
