New year promises a variety of film experiences ({{commentsTotal}})

Over the next six months, three new Estonian feature films, one animation and 10 documentaries will premiere in the cinemas.

The first of the full-length feature films, Elmo Nüganen's "1944", will be released shortly before the Independence day on February 24. As the name suggests, the film charts a series World War II events in Estonia, from the Battle of Tannenberg Line until the capture of the Sõrve peninsula on Saaremaa Island, telling the story from two opposing perspectives.

Klaus Härö's "The Fencer" is scheduled to be released in March, and Margus Paju's "Supilinna Salaselts" in May. All three films have been produced in cooperation with Finland.

Estonian film fans can also hit the cinemas for an animation by Riho Hunt and nearly a dozen documentaries, on a wide variety of topics. Some of these documentaries, including "Christ Lives in Siberia", are in the program of DocPoint Tallinn international festival, which will start next week.

In 2014, the locally produced "Nullpunkt" (Zero Point) was the ninth most popular film in Estonia with over 43,000 viewers. The most popular film of the year, Disney's "Frozen," amassed more than twice as many views.
