Estonia/ 5.3 Sector specific legislation  

5.3.6 Film, video and photography

There are no specific laws concerned with film. Estonia has ratified the European Convention on Transfrontier Television and the European Convention on Cinematographic Co-Production.

According to the Cultural Endowment of Estonia Act, the state-owned Endowment is comprised of nine departments, one of which gives grants for audiovisual arts (see also chapter 3.2 and  chapter 8.1.3).

Another arm's length body, The Estonian Film Foundation, was created by a Government Decree in May, 1997, to support and promote the development of Estonian national film culture.
