We invite up to 6 directors from all over the world to create their experimental short films during the 2024 Finno-Ugric film festival in Tartu, Estonia, as part of the European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024 main programme. Directors may bring a maximum of 2 crew members to collaborate on their projects.

Each film crew or director will be paired with a Finno-Ugric actor, character, or helper (fluent in their native language), who will be fostering collaborative engagement throughout the project. The primary objective is to create films centered on Finno-Ugric themes and languages, spanning across various genres.

The premiere of these films will take place at the festival’s closing ceremony. We offer support in the form of a line producer and accommodation during the festival. Additionally, we can provide a certain amount of film equipment as necessary, although we highly recommend participants bring their editing laptops and any other essential gear.

If you have a compelling idea or are motivated to participate, please submit a motivation letter of up to 1000 characters along with a brief directorial bio by March 30, 2024. Selections will be made by April 15.

The workshop will take place during the Fenno-Ugric Festival of Tartu 2024 from June 13th to 15th 2024, hosted in Tartu at the Estonian National Museum.
