Helsinki 2017

IRFF 2017, Helsinki

The festival took place in Helsinki, Suvilahti and Teurastamo. Our collaborators were Oranssi and B-Side bar. Originally we were supposed to be randomly in Al Hofuf, Saudi Arabia, but due to the issue Saudi Arabia has with cinemas not being allowed, in addition to several problems with human rights, we had to give up and arrange the festival elsewhere, and in this case in the home town of the festival director Hannaleena.
