Wonderful conversations, so many nice people that we met, so many fantastic films. What a great festival!

And once again, a huge thank you to the Embassy of the Netherlands in Finland for supporting the trip.
Finland’s Statue of Liberty on the market square
A ‘devil’s field’, just outside Vaasa. It was believed that the devil himself had gathered stones for his farmlands.
A site where a meteorite hit many years ago, turned into farmland. Each autumn, cranes gather there (more than 50,000!) before flying back south.
‘Liberty’ from Belgian filmmaker Phil de Witte is a thriller that exposes the suffering of wild animals in captivity and it’s absolutely mindblowing, a must see!
