Eye For Film >> Festivals >> A-Z >> Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival >> 2020
The 24th edition of Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival will be a hybrid event, running from November 13 to 29 due to the pandemic.
Festival director Tina Lokk said: “It is a miraculous feeling to announce such a large, and geographically, stylistically, and culturally diverse programme. We are truly living in strange times as the situation in the industry has been constantly changing, putting extra stress on everyone working in this business. Our hearts go out to everyone who was not able to hold their festivals this year. We hope that by screening a bigger selection than usual, we will at least provide the filmmakers with a platform to exhibit their work. And what marvellous, artistically pleasing and culturally diverse work it is."
