Festival kicks off today!

The 51st edition of Tampere Film Festival begins today. Instead of sitting at crowded movie theatres and queuing for tickets in the frosty spring weather, you’re welcome to join us this year from your own home theatre! The whole programme of the festival is available online only.

The film programme of the festival opens today at 10am (UTC+2:00) on Festhome TV platform. Also, the online ticket sales for the festival start at 10am. You can either buy an access to a single screening (5 €) which is valid for 24 hours or you can buy a festival pass (50 €) which gives you an unlimited access to the screenings on Festhome TV during 10–21 March.
