The 17th Black Nights Film Festival, which tied up on December 1, screened 585 films in Tallinn and Tartu, and broke its 2011 audience record, this time attracting 77,500 viewers.

The program included one world premiere as well as three European and 10 international premieres.

"Each year it becomes easier to gain access to films because the festivals prestige is growing in the world," head organizer Tiina Lokk said in a press release.

"We should also be proud of the fact that tens of renowned film directors, producers and actors found the time to come to Estonia," Lokk said.

The most watched movies were "Enough Said" (USA), "Three Many Weddings" (Spain) and "Amazonia" (Brazil-France). The audience favorites were "The Broken Circle Breakdown" (Belgium), "Three Many Weddings" (Spain), "Frances Ha" (USA), "Like Father, Like Son" (Japan) and "A Thousand Times Good Night" (Norway).

The festival's international judging panel gave the EurAsia best film award to the Italian-French movie "The Great Beauty." The Tridens Herring award went to Iceland's "Of Horses and Men" and the the best Estonian film award went to "Tangerines."
