Welcome to the 14th annual Estonian Documentary Film Festival. If you’re unfamiliar with the word “Estonia”, it is a small country in Northern Europe on the shore of the Baltic Sea, not far from Finland. We speak an indigenous language – Estonian – and have a deep love of song, of art, and of technology. I, myself, work in technology by day and as the Festival Director by night, which shouldn’t be considered so unusual. After all, film brings art and technology together. We couldn’t produce films or show them without inventions, without technology, and certainly not without the creative visions of the artists who bring it all together for us. Art meets Life, Technology meets Art. Mixed together, we hope, this year’s festival will bring you closer into the world of the Estonian filmmakers and artists who have made this all possible. Kristi Doughty - Festival Director.
