In 2018, the Republic of Estonia will celebrate its centenary. The anniversary programme of the Centenary of the Republic of Estonia will cover almost all the main fields of life and will give society an opportunity to look back on the history of our country, highlight the present and set new tasks for the future. To be ancient and modern at the same time, to hunger for knowledge and to believe in oneself. Besides various communities, citizens' associations and institutions, special attention will be paid to children and young people. One part of the centenary program is the making of Estonian 100 feature films, documentaries and TV-drama series.
The Centenary of the Republic of Estonia will not be compressed into one calendar year; it will let all anniversaries reach their 100-year mark in due time. This means that there is no 365-day anniversary year, but rather a time period stretching over 3 years with festivities of various intensity on given occasions. The celebration of the country’s centenary will start in the spring of 2017, when 100 years passes from the time when the areas inhabited by Estonians in the Estonian and Livonian Provinces could be united. It will reach its peak on the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia on February 24, 2018 and will end on February 2, 2020.
