Events and all that jazz

PÖFF is not just a film marathon. PÖFF is like a big cosy quilt which offers every PÖFF Wolf from any end of the woods and far-off bogs refuge from the cold harsh winds of November. For two weeks, the exquisite film menu is complemented by exciting events and enthralling journeys of discovery in the city. There is nothing more heart-warming that merry meetings and bright moments – these things make up the film of your life. We are offering such moments also outside the cinema: chatting in a restaurant, dancing with abandon at a club or enjoying fine fashion and art.


Culinary Zone

 A cinema ticket is a valuable piece of paper also this year, so keep it safe in your pocket! At Reval Café, it will get you a cup invigorating coffee for just one euro, and many other great discounts at all the PÖFF A list places.

Night Zone

We invite film lovers, most probably shaken by their film impressions, to the cosy bars and clubs on our Night Zone A list both in the Old Town and in the Telliskivi Creative City area.
