Call for videoblogger at PÖFF

Nisimazine in partnership with NISI MASA Estonia is preparing an up-coming edition in Tallinn,
Estonia, from November 26th to December 3rd 2017 in the context of the Black Nights International Film Festival.

The Black Nights International Film Festival in Tallinn is the most relaxed and compact A-list festival you will ever go to. With screenings taking place in several locations around the centre and the beautiful Old Town, you will only need a map for the first two days, and even then you will wonder if you needed it at all. Besides the excellent film programme and insightful industry events, you get the chance to enjoy the city, which is small, charming and full of hidden and very original bars and restaurants, and not very expensive if you avoid tourist traps (these will duly be pointed to you both by festival staff and your experienced tutor and co-ordinator).

Estonia is on the world’s forefront in digital technology and internet (did you know it was two Estonians who invented Skype?), and the festival’s industry section deals a lot with multimedia, cross-media, VR and other innovative platforms, and especially new forms of storytelling. Writers interested in this fast-developing, multi-faceted area of artistic approach and tech possibilities will be encouraged to investigate and cover them for Nisimazine.

Estonians are a great mix – or they are half-way – between Slavic and Nordic peoples (although they are a tribe for themselves, apparently related to Finns and Hungarians, maybe this is the best way to describe them). From the Slavs they took warmth and good looks, and from the Nordics they picked professionalism and creativity. And they combined drinking habits from both. Unlike Slavs, they all speak English, and unlike Nordics, most of them speak Russian.

To apply, please fill in the application form by 23:59 CET on 30th of October 2017. Please read below for more details on the application and selection process.

For over a decade now NISI MASA has developed a considerable experience in publishing a free
daily, weekly and monthly gazette during some of the major Film Festivals in the world. The
magazine is made in the frame of a film journalism workshop for young aspiring film journalists.
Nisimazine film journalism workshops have taken place during many international events, such as:
Cannes Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, Rotterdam Film Festival, International Documentary
Amsterdam Festival, Torino Film Festival (Italy), DocPoint Helsinki (Finland), Alba Intl Film Festival, Festival de Lima (Peru), Festival do Rio (Brazil), Abu Dhabi Film Festival (United Arab Emirates), Tallinn Black Nights (Estonia), San Sebastian International Film Festival (Spain) only to name a few.

Since 2006 over 200 young critics from all over the world have benefited from developing their
skills in a stimulating international environment.


Nisimazine Tallinn will be published online and spread through a network of thousands of contacts
in the cinema industry. The output will be a mix of film reviews, interviews, thematic articles and

Õpilaste filmikonkurss “Loodus tuleb linna”

Tallinna Ülikool ootab 15. oktoobriks õpilaste töid loodusteemalisele filmikonkursile “Loodus tuleb linna”. Konkurss on osa ülikooli suuremast ökoloogia-alasest projektist, mille raames arutletakse Euroopa tippteadlastega koos teemasid ökoloogilistest innovaatsioonist, et meie elukeskkond oleks jätkusuutlik.

Üheks projekti läbivaks teemaks on just loodussõbralikud lahendused linnaruumis ning seeläbi linna kui inimeste elupaiga kvaliteedi senisest paremaks muutmine. Filmikonkursi eesmärk on innustada lapsi ja noori märkama loodust just linnakeskkonnas. Nägema, seda, kuidas me looduspõhiseid lahendusi kasutades saame ka urbanistlikku keskkonda muuta looduslähedasemaks ja inimesele loomulikumaks. Teemaks võib olla ka olukordi, kus loodusest pole hoolitud või kus inimesekäsi on looduse hoopiski hävitanud.

Sel ajal kui Euroopa tippteadlased arutavad konverentsisaalis looduspõhiste lahenduste, inimese ja looduse suhete üle, on laste filmikonkurss kindlasti hea kasvulava uuele akadeemilisele põlvkonnale, keda juba varakult ülikooli juurde tuues tagame jätkusuutliku elukeskkonna ka tulevikus.
Konkursi tingimused:

•töö peab haakuma teemaga “Loodus tuleb linna”;
•pikkus koos algus- ja lõputiitritega kuni 3 minutit;
•filmižanr omal vabal valikul: mängufilm, komöödia, õudusfilm, draama, joonisfilm, nukufilm;
•filmifaili laiend peab olema .avi .mov. .mp4 või .wmv
•teoses kasutatud teiste autorite looming peab kindlasti olema märgitud lõputiitrites;
•kasutatud teose autor, kasutatud teose nimi (võib kasutada creative commons litsentse, vt )
•autorite arv ei ole piiratud, kuid kogu meeskond peavad olema kooliõpilased;

Töö peab olema üles laetud hiljemalt 15. oktoober 2017 kell 23.59 selleks loodud keskkonda. Tööde esitamise keskkonna ja parooli saamiseks tuleb kirjutada aadressil

Konkursi auhinnafond on kokku 3000 eurot.
Töid hinnatakse kolmes vanuseklassis:
•algkool 1.–4. klass
•põhikool 5.–9. klass
•gümnaasium 10.–12. klass ja kuni 4. taseme kutseõppe õpilased

Õpilaste filmikonkurssi korraldavad Tallinna Ülikooli BFMi Laste filmikool ja Looduse akadeemia. Konkurss korraldatakse Eesti ELi eesistumisega seotud projekti “Looduspõhised lahendused: innovatsioonist igapäevaellu” raames. Selle eesmärk on tutvustada loodusest inspireeritud innovaatilisi praktikaid ja teadmisi, mis aitavad lahendada probleeme keskkonnas, majanduses ja ühiskonnas.

Projekti korraldab Keskkonnaministeerium koostöös Tallinna Ülikooliga, toetab Euroopa Komisjon.
