Our favourite filmmakers will show a short film and will be online for a quick Q&A after the film.
Every Wednesday at 7pm, get your microdose of film!
Tune in! Mingle & have fun!
The director – Adjani Salmon – will also be joining us for Q&A!
Adjani is a budding, driven, award winning writer and director who hails from Jamaica.
His graduation film, His Father’s Son, screened at numerous film festivals internationally, including Cannes, Blackstar and the Montreal World Film festival. He is the writer, producer and lead actor for Dreaming Whilst Black. One of the most hilarious and true to life web series, you’lll ever see!
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated. Behind the scenes, SSFF team is working for the love of film and looking forward to seeing you after the intermission.
Stay safe and let’s get through this together!
On the 1st of May at the Cinema Museum we screen AURORA.
Aurora, a commitment-phobic party animal, meets Iranian Darian one night at a hot-dog stand in Lapland. Darian is running from death and Aurora is running from love. They need each other in order to finally stop running.
9 times awarded director, MIIA TERVO, addresses some big themes such as asylum seeking and female alcoholism. While the main lead, MIMOSA WILLAMO, captures the restless feelings coming from a remote place with a lack of opportunity.
As usual we will have a dance performance with workshop by a brilliant Finnish contemporary dancer.
The 1st of May is called VAPPU in Finland, a traditional holiday where family and friends reunite to celebrate with special food. You’ll get to sample some of the most delicious Finnish cuisine!
