Project Arts of Survival Documentaries aims to give an opportunity to Estonian and European documentarians to capture the unique people and places of Southern Estonia, promote international networking and share experiences and skills.
This project participates in the first Tartu 2024 culture and education programme development process, as a part of "Tartu with Europe" programme line. Projects that successfully complete the process will advance in to the European Capital of Culture programme.

We wish to engage the audiences in Tartu, Southern Estonia, Estonia and Europe through film, using traditional channels, streaming platforms, virtual realities and to screen movies during different events. As a result of the project, short documentaries about Southern Estonia will be produced by 2024.
