Kumu Documentary is the only free 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 takes place in Kumu Auditorium at Weizenbergi 34, Tallinn. The entrance on the Kadriorg side provides the most convenient access, whereas the main door in the courtyard of the museum is open only during the Kumu Art Museum’s opening hours.
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 with the support of the Cultural Endowment of Estonia.
Please note that:
— 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.
— 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.
