Together with the Finnish Cultural Institute and the Embassy of Finland, we are screening AURORA by Miia Tervo.

We are on the brink of a new era, our new mantra is 
Online, Onsite, Hybrid, and Flexible!

SSFF views social distancing  as a creative challenge to refresh and reinvent the festival experience. We became more focused, creative and resilient in front of a challenge. We believe that the best way to predict your future is to create it.

Cinemas have been open for 3 months now, with strict safety rules to protect all filmgoers. You should not worry, we got your back!

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.
