Finnish Short Film Day is held for the 11th time on December 21st, and the celebration will start a week prior on the 14th of December. The day’s origins go back to France, and its purpose is to increase the visibility of short films and bring short film screenings closer to every film lover.

There will be screenings in big theaters such as Kino K13 in Helsinki and in Niagara-theater in Tampere, but also pop-up events will take place all around Finland from Sastamala to Nilsiä and from Kirkkonummi to Rovaniemi.

In the different film packages there will be also some short animations included, for example Nun or Never (2023) by Heta Jäälinoja, Barbeque (2017) by Jenny Jokela and Letters to Parkkimäentie (2022) by Mika Koskinen.

This year Finnish Short Film Day is organised by  Tampereen Elokuvajuhlat, Rakkautta ja Anarkiaa, YLE, AV-Arkki, Turku Animated Film Festival, Oulun kansainvälinen lasten- ja nuortenelokuvien festivaali, IhmeFilmi ry and Azh Boyzz. It is funded by The Finnish Film Foundation.
