Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival and BLACK MARKET Industry Screenings 30.11 - 3.12.2009
Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival (PÖFF) will launch a new regional cinema and audiovisual market Black Market Industry Screenings. A pilot will take place this autumn from 30 November to 3 December 2009 with up to 48 industry screenings mainly focusing on the new films from the neighbouring regions and smaller film industry countries: Central and Eastern European countries, Nordic countries, Russia and countries like Georgia, Ukraine, Romania, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyztan, Tadjikistan. The traditional Baltic Event screenings, now organised in cooperation with Black Market Industry Screenings, will show the newest features from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
The goal of Black Market Industry Screenings is to enhance audiovisual cooperation on both sides of the eastern border of European Union (EU) and Nordic countries and to give filmmakers visibility and access to the bigger audiovisual markets around the world. The timing of the screenings and meetings in the beginning of December will help to summarize the year and prepare for the next one.
The event will take place in the framework of Tallinn Black Nights Film festival (12.11-6.12.2009) and also an acknowledged and well working film and co-production market Baltic Event (November 29 - December 2) that will highlight 12 projects from the Baltic countries, Scandinavia, Central and Eastern Europe and Russia.

In addition on November 29 to 30, there will be From Books To Films, a literary rights market presenting and promoting film literature from the neighbouring regions.
