SOFF is Estonia's first and only sports film festival, created by the Estonian Sports and Olympic Museum. In 2024, SOFF will return to the audience, but this time in a more special way than before: The Sports and Olympic Films Festival SOFF 2024 is part of the European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024 main programme and will be held for the fourth time next year!

The title of European Capital of Culture is the top event in Estonia in 2024. We are bringing over 300 diverse events to people of all ages, and one of them is SOFF 2024! During the festival, eight sports films from different parts of Europe will be screened, addressing current topics in both the world of sports and society.

The film program seeks solutions to questions that would make us think about future generations, gender equality, and sustainability in sports – so that there won't be a flood after us! Sport teaches us through the principles of fair play and Olympic values - respect, friendship, excellence - to be socially and environmentally responsible. But do we know how to pass on these values to those who are just taking their first steps in this world today?  

Following the films, we will open, digest, and discuss what we have just seen in a panel discussion composed of experts in the field, in order to give broader resonance to relevant themes and stimulate discussion in society.  

SOFF 2024 is partially accessible to people with hearing impairments - the films have both Estonian and English subtitles. Information on accessibility for people with visual impairments will be published no later than 1 month before the event.

Whether you are young or old, coming alone, with a friend, or as a group - if you want to be part of a change, come to the festival!

The duration of the films is approximately 1-1.5 hours, and the post-film discussion lasts about 1 hour. Films will be screened at the Tartu Elektriteater, located at Jakobi 1, Tartu.
The Sports and Olympic Films Festival (SOFF) 2024 is an official part of the main program of the European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024.
