Pöff grand opening ceremony: we were there…

We had the privilege to attend this prestigious ceremony, last Friday 11 November, and wanted to share with you some of its highlights. See how glamorous we all look...!

Estonian actor Henri Kalmet successfully hosted the ceremony entertaining the audience with compelling jokes. Then Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre‘s students put up an amazing  show with impressive dancing telling the story of French cinema.

On this special occasion, Estonian actress Ita Ever received the “Lifetime Achievement” award in recognition for her major contribution to Estonian cinema. Several speeches were given by French Ambassador Mrs Claudia Scherer-Delmas, the President of Parliament Mister Eiki Nestor and PÖFF festival Director Mrs Tiina Lokk.

And finally, PARTY TIME all night, with reception and disco at NO99, all organised with the support of the French Institute.

Now we have our tuxedos at the ready for the closing ceremony!

Black Nights festival is taking place from 11 until 27 November 2016.
