  1. Thank you for submitting your film for the International Competition at the 27th Uppsala International Short Film Festival!

  2. Dear friend and colleague,

    The Matsalu Nature Film Festival would like to invite you to an international nature film festival being held in Estonia September 17–21 2008. Please share this invitation with your colleagues!

    The first international Matsalu Nature Film Festival took place in Lihula in Western Estonia in October 2003. In 2007, 140 films from 40 different countries from all around the world were sent to the competition.
    The Festival is named after the nearby Matsalu National Park, one of Europe’s biggest bird sanctuaries and a wetland environment of global significance.

    This year’s films will be entered in one of two categories:
    A. Nature
    B. Man in nature

    Our festival differs from others in that we include nature photographers in our events and organize nature photography exhibitions.
    Both professional and amateur photographers are welcome to share their photographs and experiences, meet colleagues and learn from each other.

    Welcome to the 6th Matsalu Nature Film Festival!

    Yours sincerely,
    Tiit Mesila,
    Festival director
