Timetable 2015

The five-day-long event will include short films, feature films, installations, performances and music. The core of Pori Film Festival is a series of short films that have been collected from an open international call, local authors and guest curators. The main event (27.—29.11.) will be held at cultural center Annankatu 6. It will be preceded by a number of events held at Pori Art Museum, Finnkino and Pori City Library. Pori Film Festival will include about a hundred films. There’s also much to experience outside the screenings: enter the audiovisual labyrinth!
