Fresh From Finland

pillua aloittelijoilleFresh From Finland screening consists of a bunch of animated shorts made during 2015 and 2016. We think they represent the best of the Finnish animated films right now. The screening includes works from emerging talents as well as seasoned directors, and they are made using a delightfully diverse bunch of animation techniques.

Sore Eyes for Infinity by Elli Vuorinen has its world premiere at the festival.

Screening schedule & online ticket shop:
Jo-Jo, Fri 9.00pm
Aurinkobaletti, Sat 8.30
