Tartu 2024, looking for ideas for short films

The Tartu 2024 foundation, Estonian Film Institute and NGO Tartu Filmiselts invites filmmakers to take part in a creative contest looking for ideas for short films capturing Southern Estonia. 

The aim of the contest is to find different topics and authors who will present Tartu and Southern Estonia in artistically exciting ways. The short films would be works of their own but at the same time would form a single cultural code – the collection of short documentaries “Arts of Survival”. 

Deadline for submitting ideas: December 1st.

The films in the short film collection are internally divided into two – emic-etic (“inside and outside”) perspectives known from anthropology. As a result, a symbiotic cultural interpretation is born. The perspective of Estonian filmmakers offers a portrayal from a person operating within the culture, storing what is considered important internally, while international directors bring an external perspective to the project. Their cameras capture the socio-cultural processes happening in Southern Estonia from the outside, thus highlighting cultural patterns that are not so clearly noticeable from within while adding unique personal details. 

The ideas for the short films are evaluated by a jury consisting of representatives from the Tartu 2024 foundation and the Estonian Film Institute as well as experts from the cultural and creative sector. The jury will select up to 8 ideas that will go into production. The grant allocated per production within the project is up to 34,250 Euros. The expected length of the short film is 8-22 minutes and be finalized by February 2024.
