Tartuff 2017 reveals first films

Tartu Love Film Festival Tartuff will once again turn the Town Hall Square into the biggest open air cinema in the Baltics, screening 12 love-themed films in the span of 6 days. Read more about the films here.

Tanna is a Shakespearean love story between Wawa and Dain who live in the Vanuatu island of Tanna. Acted out by the local tribes and spoken entirely in the language of nauvhali, the film strikes with its exotic landscapes and boundless sincerity. Winner of the Venice Film Festival’s audience award.

Polish box-office hit The Art of Loving is a comedy drama about the publication of the eponymous book that was the first of its kind in Soviet Poland to openly speak of sex and sexuality.

Also appearing on the big screen are Baz Luhrmann’s Academy Award winning musical Moulin Rouge, where a young man (Ewan McGregor) finds love in a heady Parisian club, and the youth drama Being Charlie, where a young man finds love in a rehab center.

The full schedule will be revealed mid-July.  The 12th Tartu Love Film Festival Tartuff takes place August 7-12.

All festival screenings are free of charge.
