It is funded by The Finnish Film Foundation.

Pirkanmaa Film Centre and Tampere Film Festival will organise a weekly film series 52 Views on Europe during 2023. The year will feature European cinema from classics to contemporary gems, fiction, documentaries, animation, silent film concerts – films for children, young people, adults, everyone. The films are usually screened at the Arthouse Cinema Niagara in Tampere, but screenings are also held in other cinemas in Pirkanmaa.

The project is supported by Operation Pirkanmaa and the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.

The Nordic & Baltic Short Film Festivals Network was founded in 2010 by eight festivals with a mission to deepen the cooperation between Nordic film festivals.

The aim is to strengthen the position of Nordic short film by collaborations and networking, by exchanging information and ideas. Since the inception, the three Baltic nations have been included in the cooperation and expanded its reach.
