Tallinn annonce sa sélection Compétition Premiers films
Troubled Minds de Raitis Ābele et Lauris Ābele

Cet article est disponible en anglais.

Poised to celebrate its 25th anniversary in November, the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival is ready to reveal its First Feature Competition. “Let’s face it – making a debut feature film isn’t easy at the best of times. But it’s pressure that makes diamonds,” noted festival director Tiina Lokk in a statement.

“We saw enough debuts of a sufficiently high quality that we could have filled up two competition programmes. It’s a genuine shame that we can’t give all of these new directors and their unique films the platform they deserve. What we do have is a real celebration of cinema and a feast for the senses.”
