PRODUCTION

Estonian film shapes our audiovisual face both home and abroad. The production department is responsible for choosing which films will shape that face and which projects will get a green light.

EFI’s production branch is involved with film projects cut from inception to production. Many necessary steps lie in between: reading concepts and scripts, analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of the projects, considering expert opinions from outside, and keeping a beneficial eye on the production process.

The production department gives the proper support to the filmmakers to ensure that they are best able to make their films and ensures that the audience is given the highest standard of production to watch; and lastly it makes sure that the Estonian language films made by Estonian authors will continue and prosper.
