Baltic Film Days will take place on 29th–31st of August in 2024 to showcase the highlights of Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian cinema. This time, in order to celebrate the most important event in Estonia in 2024, Baltic Film Days are going to be held in Tartu.

The event offers a unique opportunity to screen the best of Baltic cinema, proving the strength and cultural value of the films from our region. In addition to film screenings, Q&A sessions will take place, allowing to discuss topics in depth and allowing the filmmakers to share their knowledge and experience with the audience. A great way to create links, build bridges, enhance mutual understanding and build a better future through culture.

The Baltic Film Days will take place already for the eight time and we are proud to be part of the European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024 main programme. The film days are simultaneously held in Latvia and Lithuania to celebrate the cultural uniqueness of the Baltics and commemorate The Baltic Way – a peaceful political demonstration that occurred on 23rd of August 1989.

All the films will be screened with Estonian and English subtitles. Screenings are free of charge.

Tartu Elektriteater is conveniently located in Tartu Old Town, right behind the main building of the University of Tartu (Jakobi 1). The cinema in an old church and since it’s a historical building, there is no elevator. Be prepared to climb a few stairs but once you get to the cinema hall you’ll be happy to see the charming wide screen that spans almost from floor to ceiling.

There is a small self-service café where you can purchase hot beverages (tea, coffee, mulled wine). Please be aware as this is self-service we ask you have some coins with you.

Looking forward to meeting you in Tartu Elektriteater in August 2024.

The event is organized by Estonian Film Institute, Latvian Film Center, Lithuanian Film Center and SA Tartu 2024.
The activities of European Capital of Culture are supported by A. Le Coq, Delfi, Top Auto and Lux Express.
