Distribution boost sessions at Finnish Film Affair 23 September!

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 and partnering with Nordisk Film & TV Fond for distribution sessions.

Nordisk Film & TV Fond will curate an afternoon session looking into the past, present and future of the Fund’s distribution boosts. Former distribution boosts have been arranged for Nordic producers and distributors of 2nd- or 3rd-time feature film directors to offer and share marketing expertise and knowledge of Nordic distribution territories in general.

Taking place in Helsinki and online on 23 September, these sessions will include case studies of films that have participated in Nordic Distribution Boost, as well as a panel discussion looking into the future of distribution and exhibition in the Nordics.

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”.
