According to the Finnish Film Foundation, the greater variety of films combined with the digitisation of cinemas that allow for a faster and wider theatrical release are some of the factors that explain the current crave from Finnish audiences for local films.
Overall, twenty eight Finnish films have been released in the region. The top film of the year so far is the remake of the Danish comedy The Reunion (506,000 admissions). Lapland Odyssey 2 was one of the top winners over this historical weekend with 327,963 total admissions. With another five films to come to Finland in the remainder of the year, including The Girl King, this is definitely a huge year for Finnish film.
