Sports and Olympic Film Festival SOFF 2024 SOFF stands for the Sports and Olympic Films Festival, which is the first sports film festival in Estonia. It is initiated by the Estonian Sports and Olympic Museum located in Tartu and is taking place for the fourth time during the year when Tartu is the European Capital of Culture in 2024.

Home and Away, director Arto Halonen, 2023

In the 1970s, two Black American basketball players introduced multiculturalism to Finland, and their sons went on to launch a battle for equality. Shawn Huff and Ervin Latimer Jr. are both sons of Black American basketball players and grew up in Finland. For their fathers, basketball has been a way out of poverty. The racism that thrived both in the US and Finland when they were young awakened political thoughts in them. Each of their sons has translated these thoughts into action in sports, culture and politics.

The film duration is 1 hour and 53 min.

All films of the Sports and Olympic Film Festival SOFF 2024 will be screened with Estonian and English subtitles at the Elektriteater in Tartu (Jakobi 1).
