How to get your film seen in Finland? is part of the GAP INFO project and supported by the Ministry of Education and Culture, City of Helsinki and the Finnish Culture Foundation.

Founded in 1988, the Helsinki International Film Festival – Love & Anarchy has been held annually ever since. The aim of Finland’s biggest film festival is to promote the artistry of filmmaking alongside inventive, groundbreaking and visually stunning new films. Bringing together different viewpoints and people, supporting local talents and screening films from artists around the world is at the core of the festival. Annually, HIFF also invites important filmmakers to speak about their work and meet both audiences and industry professionals.
