FILM PRODUCTION ON A PAR WITH PREVIOUS YEARS, BUT ADMISSIONS DECREASED BY HALF

According to Statistics Estonia, in 2020, there were 25 full-length films produced in Estonia, including 12 feature films, 12 documentaries and one animation. The number of short films (less than 60 minutes in length) produced last year was 117, of which 47 were feature films, 50 were documentaries and 20 were animations. Student films accounted for a majority of film production. According to Kaire Raasik, leading analyst at Statistics Estonia, film production in 2020 was in the same range as in previous years, while admissions dropped by a half compared to 2019. In 2020, there were 368 films screened in Estonia, of which 34 were produced in Estonia and 334 were foreign produced. According to Kaire Raasik, more than a half of cinemagoers were satisfied with the current choice of films in Estonia. ”One in ten cinemagoers would like to see more films by Estonian authors, but there were as many who would prefer to see even more foreign production. A quarter of cinemagoers would like to have a larger selection of films regardless of their origin,” explained Raasik. (ICE STOCCOLMA)
