2 LET US CAPTURE YOUR IMAGINATION AND YOUR HEART! IRINA KROHN, MANAGING DIRECTOR Dear Friends. You now have in your hands our newly revamped film catalogue with our latest feature and documentary films. In recent years we have brought you a fatherless reindeer boy as well as the Nazis from the dark side of the moon. We wish to continue bringing excitement your way with our latest offerings which are as vivacious and colorful as the ever-changing seasons of Finnish nature. Lauri Maijala shows the fans of the Hangover films how it s really done the Finnish way - with his Gloriously Wasted. Matti Ijäs makes a fantastic comeback with Things We Do for Love and brings you the wickedly delicious Ansa, who makes men chase her through our impressive Arctic landscapes. Aki Kaurismäki s muse and Cannes winner Kati Outinen fights for her right to happiness in Cold-War era Europe in Taru Mäkelä s wonderfully warm August Fools. Actress extraordinaire Leea Klemola convincingly refuses to be a victim in Simo Halinen s Open Up to Me portraying an ordinary woman who just happened to be a man before, in search of her Mr. Right. Our masterful documentary filmmaker Pirjo Honkasalo returns to the fiction genre with Concrete Night, taking the art film to a whole new level. Documentary, which has long been the flagship of Finnish cinema, is staying its course as well. Susanna Helke s American Vagabond shows a harsh reality of gay teenagers in America while Aleksi Salmenperä follows a man in search of his dream along the Alcan Highway. I invite you to explore the rest of this catalogue yourself.

4 Cultural Export of Finnish Films The Finnish Film Foundation is responsible for the cultural export and international promotion of Finnish films. Our aim is to increase the visibility of Finnish films and aid their international distribution. Major international film festivals offer Finnish films an important channel to foreign markets. We aim to find the appropriate international venue for each film in order to reach its target audience. Festival distribution is complemented by Finnish film weeks organized around the world in partnership with Finnish embassies and cultural institutes. The Finnish Film Foundation participates in film markets at the Berlin, Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals together with other Nordic film institutes under the Scandinavian Films banner. To promote short and documentary films, The Nordic film institutes and the Finnish Film Foundation cooperate at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in France, International Documentary Film Festival (IDFA) in Amsterdam, and at the Nordisk Panorama event. The Finnish Film Foundation cooperates with AVEK - The Promotion Centre for Audiovisual Culture in the cultural export of short and documentary films. The Foundation also grants support for the international promotion of Finnish films. 4
