15th Matsalu Nature Film Festival (MAFF)

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

The MAFF is an annual nature film event. It has been named after the nearby Matsalu National Park, which is one of largest bird sanctuaries in Europe. The festival promotes nature-oriented and sustainable ways of life and respect for the nature-connected traditions of indigenous people. The MAFF 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.

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

The MAFF takes place in the idyllic town of Lihula in Western Estonia. A selection of films are also shown in Haapsalu and Tallinn.
