The Finnish Film Affair is the industry event of Helsinki International Film Festival – Love & Anarchy and an international showcase of Finnish films and Nordic talent. Organised since 2012, approximately 400 film industry professionals from around the world attend the event each year.
Finnish Film Affair is also the home for Nordic Flair, a training programme that provides valuable career development opportunities for Nordic filmmaking talent. The event culminates in a public award ceremony for the Nordic Flair Award, granted annually to an individual working in the film industry whilst boosting recognition of Nordic talent internationally.
In 2020, in addition to showcasing nearly 50 Finnish films in its programme, the event also highlighted four first or second feature directors from our neighbouring Nordic countries in its Works in Progress section.
The 10th Finnish Film Affair will take place in Helsinki and online 22-24 September 2021. Our call for Finnish projects is now open until 26 May 2021.
