Four Georgian movies will be screened at Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival which will take place on November 13-29 in Estonian cities of Tallinn, Tartu, Narva and Kohtla- Järve.

In honour of the late Georgian film director Zaza Urushadze three movies by him will be shown in Tallinn – Tangerines, Three Houses and Anthon.

Tangerines (Mandarinebi), the first Georgian-Estonian co-production was shortlisted among five films in the Best Foreign Language Film category at the Oscars 2015.

Anton is the last work of Urushadze. It tells the story of friendship between two boys that is stronger than the dramatic events that are unfolding around them.

Anton is a co-production of Ukraine, Georgia, Lithuania, the United States, and Canada.

A debut film by Dea Kulumbegashvili, titled Beginning will be shown in the CURRENT WAVES section. The section unites the films that have already been successfully premiered at different leading film festivals and have won international awards.

Beginning, a candidate film for the OSCARS 2021, is a co-production of Georgia and France.

The Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival is one of the largest film events in Northern Europe.

Annually the festival hosts 1,000 filmmakers and 160 journalists.

Georgia was granted the status of Focus Country in 2015.
