Films are also internationally nominated at the Finnish Film Days, which will take place from 7 to 11 February at the Toldi Cinema.
The program organized by the Finnish Institute (FinnAgora) has attracted a number of Finnish and international prizes, and the documentary film can be seen by directors such as Teemu Nikki, Samira Elagoz or Dome Karukoski – reads the press release.
Through the works, the audience can gain insights into the everyday life of Finnish people, learn their thoughts, their humor, and, at times, create an unusual world of non-Finns that can engage the viewer with a strong sense of purpose.
The opening film Teemu Nikki will be the black comedy of the Euthanizer, which will be awarded with numerous festivals. The biography inspired by Tom of Finland is Dome Karukoski’s multi-award winning director, which was nominated for the official Oscar nomination for Finland last year.
Samira Elagoz’s Cragslist Allstars introduces viewers to the interesting world of dating, Mia Halme’s work on Half Marriage focuses on divorce.
There are several roundtable discussions among the screenings. The first one gives us an insight into the mysteries of scriptwriting, and the other is described by the female artist’s view, which in many cases differs from the man’s usual habit and most of the men who dominate the film, be it the director or even the productive mentality. Both events will be attended by Finnish and Hungarian artists and artists.
The films are filmed in Finnish, Hungarian and English subtitles.
