Films for the 2019 Tampere Film Festival Competitions have now been selected.

Hundreds of films were submitted to the National Competition of Tampere Film Festival. 30 films were selected for the category of the films under 30 minutes and eight films into the category of over 30 minutes.

Over 4000 films from all over the world were submitted to the International Competition, 59 of which were selected from 47 countries.

According to the Festival Director Jukka-Pekka Laakso, the decision-making process was increasingly difficult due to the quantity and quality of films improving every year. “It’s a positive problem though – the high quality films make both competitions excellent this year”, Laakso points out.

You can find the films selected into the International Competition here and into the National Competition here.

The winners will be revealed at the award ceremony on the last day of the festival, the 10th of March.
