Dear friends and filmmakers!

We would like to invite you to the 15th MAFF being held in Estonia September 20-24, 2017!

 

Our festival is an annual nature film event. It is named after the nearby Matsalu National Park, one of Europe's largest bird sanctuaries and a wetland environment of global significance. The festival showcases a variety of new international films about nature, wildlife, expeditions, environment, sustainability, biodiversity, conservation - films that depict nature in its diversity and films about the coexistence of man and nature.

 

Every September since 2003, the idyllic town of Lihula in Western Estonia hosts the five-day long event. Since 2008 a selection of films are shown in Haapsalu and since 2014 also in Tallinn.

 

The festival hosts also various art and photography exhibitions, photo presentations and meetings of both professional and amateur nature photographers. The program includes also screenings, activities and workshops for schoolchildren, roundtable discussions on different nature-related topics and other cultural events.

 

The results of this year's festival can be found here >>
