It was only yesterday that we invited some twenty well-known filmmakers to Tartu and Southern Estonia for a residency to explore the future European Capital of Culture with the aim of finding a place, a person, an environment, and a story that could be a film.

These discovered stories have become eight films, and we invite you to their premieres. On this wild evening, the events will take place in eight locations across Southern Estonia, all streamed simultaneously.

Please RSVP on this website.

Evening schedule
16.00 Wild welcome drink and a light snack
17.00 Speeches and connections with other premiere locations, followed by a short break
18.00 Premiere of the film
21.00 Afterparty at Anne sauna

How to get to Tõravere Observatory?

Public transportation

If you want to use public transportation, we suggest taking an hourly bus from Tartu to Elva, which stops in Tõravere stop on a road, about 15 min walking distance from the main building. Some buses are coming up to the hill as well. The bus trip will take about 30-45 min from Tartu to Tõravere, depending on the bus route.

You can get to Tõravere also by train. Train stop is in 15 minute walk away.

Car and bicycle

If you are coming by car, you have to notice a sign “Tõravere, observatoorium” on the Jõhvi-Tartu-Valga road (E264). Coming from Tartu direction, turn to the right, coming from Elva direction turn tothe left, and drive to the main building in the top of the hill. By car, it takes less than 30 min to get from Tartu to Tõravere, depending on the starting point.


You can park your vehicle in the parking place on the left side behind the main building at the entrance of the visitor centre.

Address: Observatooriumi 1, Tõravere


There will be guests who drive to the premiere and might have a free seat. And then there are those looking for transport to get to the premiere. Here is an opportunity to make ends meet, perhaps offering a ride or finding a ride.

Afterparty at Anne sauna

Welcome to the wild afterparty at Anne sauna in Tartu! But the clothes stay on this time, and instead of a sauna, we heat up the dance floor! We welcome DJs from home and abroad. However, we remember to respect the gods of the sauna—we have the opportunity to learn various sauna customs and activities. The evening is encouraged by the Hulkur bar and a selection of street food.

Address: Anne 44, Tartu
Parking is available next to the venue.
