Irish films at PÖFF

20th Black Nights Film Festival (PÖFF) is taking place between 11th -27th November and during this period there will be, as always, some Irish films screened

Ambassador Frank Flood has been in contact with the organisers of PÖFF as part of the Embassy’s longstanding support for the festival and has highlighted the importance of 2016 in Ireland to the organisers. In recognition, to mark the centenary of the Easter Rising 1916, Sleepwalkers (PÖFF's international short film festival) will screen a special programme of Irish short films called AFTER'16, which is the Irish Film Board's cultural contribution to the 1916 Rising centenary to commemorate, celebrate and reflect on 1916. The filmmakers have given their response to 1916 and the hundred years since - the programme will tell stories, both fact and fiction, which illuminate, surprise and even provoke the wide subject of 1916 and what it has left in its wake.
The AFTER'16 short films will be on screen on Tuesday 15th November at 20:00 in SuperNova Cinema at Narva Road 27, Tallinn
