* Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival opens film submissions with a new green initiative.
* Sub-festival PÖFF Shorts becomes an Academy Qualifying festival.
Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival aka PÖFF, the only A-category film festival in Northern Europe open submissions for its 24th edition, which is set to run from the 13th until the 29th of November.
PÖFF has opened submissions in Filmfreeway for the main festival and its two sub-festivals: youth and children’s film festival Just Film and short film and animation festival PÖFF Shorts. The regular deadline with a lower fee – is set on July the 1st, while the final deadline is the 24th of August.
As a new endeavour, Black Nights has joined a group of film festivals pledging to do more in engaging in sustainable activities in 2020 and support and spread the word of people who are trying to make a change. A Green Pledge of film festivals is currently also in the works with several major film festivals. As a first step, however, Black Nights has decided to donate one euro from every submission fee received to the restoration of the forests that burned in Australia (read more here).
