Due to the coronavirus spread in Estonia, the festival has announced new dates for its 2021 edition. The 16th HÕFF will take place from June 4-6, 2021.
"Before we were known as heralds of spring, now we will herald summer," said Helmut Jänes, director of HÕFF. He says moving the dates will give the organisers a bigger playground, including more open-air events.
The festival's opening film this year is Canadian director Steven Kostanski's horror comedy „Psycho Goreman”. The full schedule will be announced on May 6th when ticket sales begins. A limited amount of festival passes are already on sale.
From this week, the Black Nights web cinema will also broadcast HÕFF's audience favourites from previous festivals. The screenings are kicked off with Canadian director Cameron Macgowan's Red Letter Day – a humorous horror thriller in which a suburb is shaken up when all its residents receive a letter enclosed with a portrait: "Kill this person before they kill you!".
The web cinema ticket is 4€. The films are only available to watch in Estonia. People who already bought the HÕFF pass can watch the HÕFF web cinema films for free. For more information, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 16th HÕFF will take place from June 4-6, 2021.
