Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event Works In Progress launches a new category for children and youth films

Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event Works In Progress  launches a new category for children and youth films


For the first time, Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event showcases five children and youth film projects in a newly launched Just FIlm Works in Progress category. The films in production or post-production looking for sales distributors, sound design, productions or festivals for international premieres will be presented at the Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event Work in Progress sessions on November 26th.

According to Mikk Granström, Head of Just Film, the launch of Just Film Works in Progress focusing on film projects for children and youth is a logical step, as Just Film, a part of Black Nights Film Festival is expanding bit by bit every year. “We are delighted that our audience is more and more keen on youth and children's films - the number of people attending the screenings is growing with each festival.” Granstrtöm also added that filmmakers are showing more interest in Just Film as they like to present their new films at our festival and the number of submissions increases every year. “After calling for proposals for Works in Progress for the children and youth films category we were positively surprised with the interest and amount of submissions we received,” he adds. 

Just Film Works in Progress in Tallinn at the Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event showcases five films: Family (Taiwan), Final Exam (Kosovo), Unknown Treasures (Lithuania), Christmas in the Jungle and Raggie (Estonia). “While looking through the submissions, we focused on the films that might be especially engaging for kids and youth, but also for the whole family,” Granström commented on the selection.

About Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival



Started in 1997, the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival has grown into one of the biggest film festivals in Northern Europe and busiest regional industry platforms, hosting more than 1000 guests and industry delegates and over 160 journalists. The festival screens around 250 features and more than 300 shorts and animations and sees an attendance of 80 000 people annually. In 2017 the festival was covered in 71 languages with a potential global media audience of over 1.1 billion people.

As of 2014 the festival holds the FIAPF accreditation for holding an international competition programme which puts the festival into the so- called A-category of film festivals, alongside other 14 festivals in the world (including Cannes, Berlinale, Venice, Karlovy Vary, San Sebastian, Shanghai, Tokyo etc).  

Black Nights has an umbrella structure with two sub-festivals PÖFF Shorts and youth and children's film festival Just Film taking place concurrently with the main festival,
two off-season festivals - Haapsalu Horror and Fantasy Film Festival and Tartu Love Film Festival - and a fully-fledged film industry platform Industry@Tallinn, organised jointly with the Baltic Event Co-production market.
