PÖFF contributes to preserving threatened forests

Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival will invest 0.5 euros from each film submission fee in the preservation of European and Brazilian pristine forests. The amount raised will be donated to Single.Earth, an Estonian green tech start-up that directly funds landowners to save their biodiverse forests from deforestation pressure.


Film submission for the 23rd edition of Black Nights and both of the sub-festivals are open with a new international competition line.
