    NB! All March screenings of Kumu Dokumentaal postponed until April due to COVID-19. Thank you for your understanding!

    Kumu Documentary is the only weekly documentary programme in Estonia that includes films about art and artists, as well as cultural documentaries on a variety of topics. We work closely with all the Estonian documentary film festivals and often present the best films of their selection. With a keen eye for trends in contemporary documentary filmmaking, we invite viewers to discover and give thought to the world around us. Most screenings are introduced by specialists of respective fields and we welcome public discussion.

    Kumu Documentary is a project of regular documentary film screenings initiated by the Black Nights Film Festival and Kumu Art Museum in February 2006. The documentaries are screened in the Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn, which is the winner of the the 2008 European Museum of the Year Award.

    Please note that:

    • — From 10 February, the starting time of the screenings of Kumu Documentary will change. The main screening will begin at 5 pm.
    • — There will be a repeat screening of some of the films that will begin at 7.30 pm. Please pay attention to our programme on our homepage and Facebook!
    • — Due to limited seating, a maximum of 122 people can participate in each screening.
    • — Because of the continuous presence of COVID-19 in Estonia, every viewer must fill in a questionnaire including their contact details and must register their seat numbers with the organisers before entering the auditorium.
    • — The reason for the change in times is so we can organise additional screenings and everyone interested can see the films during the period of limited seating (up to 50%), even when the seats of the first screening have been filled.
    • — We ask viewers to take into consideration that if 50% of the seats (122) have been filled, no latecomers will be allowed entry.
    • — We ask all participants in events in the Kumu auditorium to wear masks and disinfect their hands upon entry into the building or the auditorium.

    Weekly screenings in the Kumu Art Museum with free admission. 
    Kumu Documentary is supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia.
