    The first Estonian film was shot and released in 1912. This web-based filmography, opened at the end of 2012, covers most of the works made during one hundred years of film production in Estonia. The database is maintained by NGO Estonian Film Database (Project Manager Reet Sokmann, Editor-in-Chief Hagi Shein). During the first stage of development full entries of all feature films produced during 100 years and also film chronicles for the period 1912-1940 were completed. The database will be fully elaborated during 2013-2017, but already now the basic information about 15 000 films and newsreels, 6000 filmmakers and more than 200 Estonian film production companies is made available. Database is translated into English on a constant basis.
