Coronavirus unsurprisingly causes 2020 cinema attendance in Estonia to fall dramatically, but Estonian films still prove popular amongst local audiences.
The development award for co-productions between Italy and the Baltic States was created in November 2018 on the basis of an agreement entered into between Italy and the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania).The purpose of granting the award is to finance the development of co-production of full-length feature films, full-length animated films, and full-length documentaries between Italy and the Baltic States. The running time of a film must be at least 52 minutes.
At least one of the producers must be registered in Italy while at least one producer must be registered in one of the Baltic States in order for the co-production to be eligible for the award.
The call for the Award is now open and the deadline for submitting applications is January 14, 2021.
