After a roller-coaster year, covering festivals and films of all shapes and sizes throughout Europe, Nisimazine is almost reaching its final instalment for the year (one final surprise still will be arriving soon).
Nisimazine Tallinn, the prodigy of the team covering the PÖFF | Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.
We’ve been offered an opportunity to catch up on the films that have slipped through our fingers so far, to make sure we tick off all the items on our list before we can start the one for next year. But we were also introduced to some fine pieces of filmmaking that were only exposed under the moonlight of Tallinn.
Here’s a list for you: compelling films, nuanced and analytical critiques, plenty of eye-candy imagery infused with the spirit of the festival.
Hope you’ll tick them all off as soon as you’ve browsed Nisimazine Tallinn 2013. Enjoy
