Arts of Survival Documentaries

Arts of Survival Documentaries invites Estonian and European documentary filmmakers to capture the unique people and places of Tartu and South Estonia, promote international networking, share experiences and skills. As a result, eight short documentaries about South Estonia will be produced by independent filmmakers under the collective name "Arts of Survival" addressing various topics from robotics clubs to the uniqueness of our wetland areas, from active local communities to the legacy of Jüri Lotman, Uku Masing or Jaan Kaplinski, from rustic grocery stores in rural areas to startups in Tartu. Filmmakers will be immersed in the small communities all over the region to explore their differences and/or similarities and find connections with other regions of Europe.
