Welcome to Pärnu Film Festival!

XXXVIII Pärnu Documentary and Science Film Festival will take place on October 6–13 2024 in Pärnu and October 13–20 2024 in other locations of Estonia. In the autumn of 2024 the awarded docs will be screened at the Estonian Art Museum in Tallinn as well as at the Estonian National Museum in Tartu. 

We await submissions from all over the world.

 Early submissions have an entry fee of five euros up to April 1st, 2024. From that date through the deadline in June 1st, 2024, the submission fee will be 15 euros per entry.

The selection committee will announce their decision latest by August 1st, 2024.

We hope to compose a powerful program of docs of high artistic and scientific quality. From the very beginning, our focus has been on folk arts, disappearing cultures as well as future of young people. In the time of bloody wars, we seek docs with messages for peaceful world.
