This film programme compiled by the artist Mika Taanila looks at the short but rich tradition of experimental film and video art in Finland. The works range from historical celluloid landmarks to analogue video art, and finally to more recent digital gems. The focus here is on cinematic concept, structural approach and sound, rather than obsessive storytelling.

Participating artists
Jan Bark & Erkki Kurenniemi; Timo Aarniala, Pirjo Honkasalo, Anki Lindqvist, Timo Linnasalo, Inger Nylund, Erkki Seiro; Pasi ”Sleeping” Myllymäki; Johan Oja; Eino Ruutsalo; Denise Ziegler; Juha van Ingen; Laura Joutsi; Salla Tykkä; Petteri Cederberg; Pekka Sassi

Supported by AV-arkki Distribution Centre for Finnish Media Art.
Part of Nordisk Panorama Film Festival 2017.
