Sten-Kristian Saluveer, the curator of EFFT21, says "At the end
of 2021 European industry standing at crossroads: we are still
coping with the COVID19 pandemic and the crashing of the indie
value chain. Yet, we are on the verge of the biggest
renaissance, looking at new support and innovation measures on
behalf of the European Commission, growing commissions and
reopening theatrical. We are tremendously excited to bring
another trend-setting Film Forum in Tallinn in our long
partnership with the European Commission to explore and beacon
where the industry will be heading next. The only limit seems
to be understanding the audiences, markets, and shifts - and
taking bold strategic decisions."
