Everyone's Stories to the Screens and Girls' Turn discussions

Discussing the current topics about representation and girls in films and as filmmakers. The discussions are in Finnish.

Everyone's Stories to the Screens

Does Finnish cinema tell everyone's stories, as the logo of the Finnish Film Foundation suggests? Where are we in the visibility of minorities in cinematography? The discussion will consider how different minority groups could make films and tell their stories more often and in a more diverse way than before – does the film industry act as a gatekeeper or an enabler? The discussants for the discussion Everyone’s Stories to the Screen are distributor Katarina Nyman (Nordisk Film), producers Elina Pohjola (Yle) and Max Malka (Endemol Shine) and cultural producer Sonya Ingher, who has studied visual communication and representation. The discussion is moderated by Tytti Rantanen, a film writer and board member of Espoo Ciné.

Girls' Turn

In the Girls' Turn discussion, we create an overview of what girlhood looks like in Finnish cinema right now! Where do modern drama and tensions arise when old moralising story models end up in the scrap heap? Is there still something holding back girlhood? And how does girlhood fit into gender diversity? The discussants are Hanna Bergholm, the director of Hatching, Linnea Leino, Eleonoora Kauhanen and Aamu Milonoff, the actresses of Girl Picture, and film essayist Katja Kallio. The discussion was moderated by Tytti Rantanen, a film writer and board member of Espoo Ciné.

WHEN? Friday, Sept 2, at 3.15 pm – 4.40 pm
