About the Finnish Film Affair
The Finnish Film Affair is an initiative of the Helsinki International Film Festival – Love & Anarchy offering an industry event to the festival. The event is a showcase of Finnish films and a networking platform for attending industry professionals. The country’s main film industry event takes place yearly in a welcoming and laid-back but highly efficient and professional setting.
Attending sales agents, distributors, festival programmers, TV buyers, and representatives of the press have an opportunity to get to know to the latest and upcoming Finnish feature films and documentaries. Approximately 300-400 film industry professionals from Finland and abroad are expected to attend yearly.
The eighth edition of the Finnish Film Affair took place in Helsinki from the 17th to the 19th of September, 2019. The Finnish Film Affair will return in September 2020.
The event is a joint venture of several film organizations in Finland, such as the Finnish Film Foundation, Audiovisual Producers Finland, Creative Europe / Media, Business Finland, Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Education and Culture, Avek, and Central Organisation of Finnish Film Producers.
