Pori Film Festival is a film festival and happening that celebrates the diversity of cinema. We are looking for interesting experiments, energetic expressions, essayistic beauty and sharp-minded manifestations that reveal the overwhelming capability of the audiovisual medium to create and investigate realities.
The event is held in the post-industrial town of Pori on the west coast of Finland. The town of around 85 000 inhabitants is relatively well known of its alternative music and arts scene, but so far film culture has been very thin and defined by one multiplex theater. In the year 2015 a group of enthusiasts and cultural activists from different associations, jumped behind the wheel and launched an adventurous journey to the unknown to show people (themselves included) what cinema and audiovisual arts can really do.
Pori Film Festival is a laboratory, a good party and a journey to the unknown territories of existance and audiovisual alchemy!
This annual festival is organized by independent and non-profit cultural associations with experience in multidisciplinary happenings, audio/visual arts, music and performative arts in Pori, west coast of Finland.
