Baltic Event may be biggest yet

250 international guests expected at co-prod market

The Baltic region’s biggest annual co-production market opens in Tallinn Wednesday.

The ninth Baltic Event, part of the Black Nights Film Festival, runs until Friday in the Estonian capital.

It promises to be the biggest yet with many industryites and celebs flying in for the European Film Awards here on Saturday.

This year’s market has 250 international guests, 16 co-production projects and a host of screenings and works-in-progress presentations.

Focused on film from the Baltics, Scandinavia and Russia, event kicks off with a Russian Day, featuring projects from some of the country’s top producers.

Baltic Event organizer Eda Koppel said, “Experience from previous years proves the market’s effectiveness.”

Two films developed at the mart — Arto Halonen’s “Princess” from Finland and Veiko Ounpuu’s “The Temptation of St. Tony” from Estonia — are in competition at the Black Nights fest, which closes Sunday.
