FINNISH FILM AFFAIR presents: Nordic Flair – a workshop focusing on career development for actors
A new sidebar event to HIFF’s industry event, the Finnish Film Affair, was launched in 2017, called Nordic Flair. Nordic Flair welcomes Nordic actors to come and meet industry experts and discuss topics related to their career development. The event takes place in Helsinki in Sept 26-27.
