US-Finnish film markets to be discussed in Helsinki
This Tuesday more than seventy international delegates are set to attend the Finnish Film Affair for a two-day trade fair where US-Finnish collaborations will be under the spotlight. The Finnish mini-market is held as part of the Helsinki International Film Festival (Sept 17-27).
One of the highlights of the market is the discussion ‘How to Develop a Film for the US Market’, which will include a round table with senior US executives. Other festival programmers from SXSW, Seattle and a delegation of nine journalists from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association are attending the Finnish Film Affair presenting this year 29 finished films and 19 works in progress.
