Pärnu Film Festival screens documentaries from around the world ({{commentsTotal}})


Pärnu International Documentary and Anthropology Film Festival is taking place in the most popular Estonian resort town, screening films from as far as Peru and Indonesia.

The idea for the festival came from the former president and filmmaker Lennart Meri in 1987 and it was subsequently organized by documentary maker Mark Soosaar. The festival is now one of the oldest of its kind in the Baltic states.

One of the main themes of the festival has always been the survival of indigenous peoples and their cultures. But the screening program also includes social interpretations of contemporary society, portraits of interesting people and human relations as well as films on music and art.

For full program, please visit the festival's website.
