Established in 2001, DocPoint expanded to Tallinn, the capital of neighbouring Estonia, in 2010 and it has since been the only festival in the world to take place in two countries simultaneously.

No matter if you’re in Tallinn or Helsinki, you will be able to watch some of the most attention-grabbing documentaries from the past year. A number of anticipated Finnish documentaries are set to be premiered too.

In addition, a series of seminars, lectures and masterclasses will be running alongside the screenings as well as the popular Dokkino, which focuses on a younger audience (aged 10–15). In 2017, Dokkino toured 19 Finnish cities and reached around 23,000 young people.

The festival lineup, venues and tickets can be found on the official website from January 7th.
