Finland: Independence Day

Finland: Independence Day

We celebrate the centenary of Finnish independence with a season of films curated by the Midnight Sun Film Festival, Finland’s coolest film event.

Founded in 1986 by Finnish filmmakers Mika and Aki Kaurismäki, the festival is located in the village of Sodankylä, in the heart of Finnish Lapland, some 120 kilometres from the Arctic Circle. Audiences watch films 24 hours a day, as the summer sun never sets. We are delighted to bring the ‘spirit of Sodankylä’ to London to screen a selection of Finnish films from across the decades. 


Presented in partnership with the Finnish Film Foundation and National Audiovisual Institute
