A competition for Best Baltic Feature is also showcased, with features, animation and documentaries from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. 15 films in the program are nominated for European Film Awards, including the screenings of such high-end titles as Il Divo (Italy, Paolo Sorrentino), The Class (France, Laurent Cantet), Gomorrah (Italy, Matteo Garone), Happy Go Lucky (UK, Mike Leigh) and Waltz With Bashir (Israel). The Awards themselves will be presented in Tallinn in 2010, the first time in an Eastern European city.
