Distribution boost sessions at Finnish Film Affair The industry event Finnish Film Affair, taking place 23-25 September in Helsinki as well as online, will this year strengthen its Nordic ties by highlighting emerging filmmaking and industry talent from the Nordic countries.
This year’s main conference theme will be ‘The Future of Film Distribution in the Nordics’, and is organised in association with Nordisk Film & TV Fond. The first industry session on Wednesday September 23 will include three sessions, moderated by Andrea Reuter:
‘Nordic Distribution Boost Case Studies’ with practical tips on marketing from development to theatrical release of films that took part in Nordisk Film & TV Fond’s former ‘Nordic Distribution Boost’ scheme.
‘Streamers 01’, with an depth-overview from the UK’s Ampere Analysis of trends in streaming services around the world.
‘Distribution in the Near Future’, with a panel of experts (to be announced) who will discuss marketing and distribution models and possible ways to strengthen the Nordic industry.
Liselott Forsman, CEO of Nordisk Film & TV Fond states: “Even before the pandemic our industry was in constant change. Today we need to find new strategies to keep our Nordic industry globally strong after standstills and lockdowns that might come back. Collaboration is the key here too and we are very happy to partner up with Finnish Film Affair. Having presented the Fund’s popular distribution boosts in Helsinki through case studies, we will enter into a dialogue with the event’s top professionals on how the Fund best can help Nordic films travel in the future”.
Currently Nordisk Film & TV Fond does not have any additional funding initiatives running. When announced Guidelines, Application information and Downloads will be available here.
