Press accreditation

The media accreditation to the 24th Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival aka PÖFF and the audiovisual industry platform Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event is open. The physical festival takes place from the 13th to the 29th of November in Tallinn and Tartu, Estonia, while the industry events will happen only online this year.

The accredited foreign press will be granted access to the festival’s programme and industry programme digitally via the Shift72 platform, no matter their geographic location, during the festival time.

The PRESS accreditation will give you access to any PÖFF or sub-festival screenings, press events and all of the open industry events. The physical press screenings will not take place this year. The accreditation fee is 15 EUR, valid before and during the festival.


Information for press who is hosted and/or who's travel is arranged by the festival:
Due to likely travel restrictions caused by the resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the travel of foreign filmmakers and the press will be decided upon according to the situation in late October depending on whether Estonia’s COVID restrictions allow for movement from the country of their current residency or not. It is very likely that countries in the Schengen area will be less affected. The festival has partnered with medical companies SYNLAB and Medicum and is currently preparing a protocol of pre-testing via mail to ensure that more people will be able to attend the events without the quarantine requirement.
