Over two dozen Estonian festivals, including Black Nights Film Festival, Prima Vista International Literary Festival and Viljandi Folk Music Festival, have been awarded an EFFE label that marks Europe's finest festivals of 2015-2016.

EFFE - Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe, initiated by the European Festivals Association, is the guide for citizens and the platform for professionals to discover and get involved in Europe’s festivals. Following a process of intense evaluation by national experts and an international jury, it has selected 761 festivals from 31 countries to be part of the first generation of EFFE Label recipients. With the label, EFFE recognizes the immense excellence of these festivals in their daily local work all across Europe.

Following an open call to apply for the EFFE Label 2015-2016 launched in summer 2014, hundreds of festivals submitted applications to demonstrate their devotion to three EFFE Label criteria: artistic commitment, community involvement and a festival’s international and global outlook. National experts, appointed by EFFE’s national contact points reaching out to festivals in each country, scored the applications and presented the findings to an international jury which nominated the EFFE Label 2015-2016 recipients in May 2015.

The next EFFE awarded festivals to take place in Estonia are literary festival HeadRead from May 27-31, and Tallinn Treff Festival of visual theater from June 4-7.
