International Competition

A total of 6546 films were submitted to the 2024 International Competition, of which 64 films from 48 countries were selected for screening. The jury’s criteria focused on bringing in films from all over the world, not just from the European cultural sphere. The films present different filmmaking possibilities and talk about topics that are important and sometimes forgotten.

Among Finnish films, Elli Vuorinen’s Flower Show (2023), Heta Jäälinoja‘s Nun or Never! (2023) and Anna Kekkonen‘s Rajapinta (2023) made it to the International Competition as well as the National Competition.

All the selected films listed, awards and juries can be found on our website in the competitions section.

The winners of the 2024 competitions will be awarded at the Awards Ceremony on Saturday 9 March at Tuulensuu Palace.
