Press Service

Dear journalist,

The press team of Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival operates year round and assists you with questions regarding the festival’s communication, accreditation, press screenings, conferences and helps you to organise interviews with the festival’s representatives and the filmmakers who are present at the festival.


We offer two types of media accreditation for our 2021 edition: PRESS (for onsite attendees) and PRESS ONLINE (for online-only attendees).

The PRESS accreditation will give you access to the festival's press and regular screenings, press events and all of the open industry events, both onsite and online. Early bird PRESS accreditations cost €35 until November 4, when the price will rise to 50€.

PRESS ONLINE accreditations will grant accredited foreign press access to the festival’s competition programme films and most industry events digitally via the Elisa Stage platform, no matter their geographic location, during the festival time. PRESS ONLINE accreditations are priced at 20€ until November 4 (after that 25€).

Due to Covid-19, to ensure the safety of all festival guests and in accordance with the Estonian Health Board rules, onsite press will be asked to present one of the following: internationally recognised certificate of full vaccination or document proving recovery from COVID-19 within the past six months. The latest information on entering Estonia from abroad can be found here.
