"I'm pleased to say the yearly cinema visits per capita in tiny Estonia was 2.5, which makes Estonia one of the highest-attending countries in Europe", Edith Sepp, Head of Estonian Film Institute said.

In 2016 total admissions were 3.29 million with a total box office gross of 17.77 m EUR, resulting in a double digit market share for domestic films for the second consecutive year in a row.
