Martin Ruus (EE)

Founder and head of Intsikurmu festival, which is one of the best known Estonian indie boutique festivals taking place in the magical forest park of  South-Estonia every August. Martin has been organising it since 2010. Due to this year’s special situation, this year’s festival was the most difficult and interesting of them – in addition to the live festival in the forest park, it was recorded by a professional team with 16 TV cameras, and the festival could be watched online in every corner of the world.

Martin graduated the Baltic Film and Media School as a movie director and producer. For years he was the CEO of the short and animated film festival PÖFF Shorts and the Haapsalu Horror and Fantasy Film Festival. Currently he runs his own event marketing agency and has been working in this field for many years, producing various events.
