Finland: The coolest Nordic country is fast becoming a filming hot spot

The Finland Film Commission's web page toolkit features Finland´s superiority in a nutshell. The themes - coolest, wildest, lightest and easiest - give you an instant idea of why you should film in Finland.

Finland’s cool winter conditions guarantee snow and a crew well-versed in winter knowledge, whilst summer offers spectacular light, becoming the land of the midnight sun and the brightest location in Europe.

The diverse landscape offers everything from wilderness to urban jungle. As the easiest location in terms of accessibility and shooting permits, it can offer you the same inspiration it does for Finnish filmmakers.

Finns are experts in filming in winter. Accustomed to the cold, the snow and arctic winds, these conditions are no threat to productions being handled with true professionalism and efficiency. That´s what makes filming with Finns the coolest experience.

The wilderness is on everyone's doorstep here. Finns live symbiotically with nature and are familiar with its features. Perhaps that’s why Finnish productions have such a distinctive, wild touch!

Finland offers unique light set-ups year-round. Summer nights make for longer shooting days and winter skies showcase the incomparable northern lights. Finnish crews are fun-spirited yet straight forward and reliable when it comes to filming.

Urbanity is second nature to Finns. The Finnish urban location spectrum contains everything from concrete jungles to idyllic wooden houses. With easy access, great public transportation and general safety, Finland is a true gem of a filming location.

Be sure to check out another Finnish hot spot on 24 June in Cannes: “Beach Sauna” at Vegaluna Beach!
