The industry event of HIFF – Love & Anarchy, Finnish Film Affair is an international marketplace for Finnish and Nordic films, and a networking event for over 500 industry professionals from around the world.

This year, projects with Finland as a minority co-production country can also apply to pitch. The application closes on Monday the 29th of May. 

Representatives of chosen projects will have the opportunity to pitch on Thursday the 21st of September, receive accreditation to the event, pitch training and curated meetings with international guests. Three awards are presented at the event; one for best Fiction, Documentary and Nordic Project.

The showcase projects are selected in June 2023 by committees of international decision makers. Joining the Head of FFA for the fiction jury are Heidi Zwicker (Sundance Film Festival), Eleonora Pesci (Curzon) and Sergio Fant (Berlinale).
