Larger-than-life films and our dear audience are more important to us than anything. With a heavy heart but head filled with ideas we have been looking for a solution to arrange the Midnight Sun Film Festival despite the world so hardly beaten by a tiny virus. And now we have some good news to you: MSFF will take place, but in a new form. We cannot gather under the midnight sun, but we’ll be bringing the event to your living rooms.
We are thinking of all of our staff, who invest their time and energy each summer by our side; the filmmakers who had accepted our invitation for June; the distributors who wanted to present beautiful films as exclusive previews; all of our partners, who have supported us for many years and those who were joining us for the first time; the members of the press who have been covering the festival year after year and of course our wonderful volunteers without whom the festival would not exist.
Above all, we are thinking of the many festivalgoers, ever faithful to the event, who so enjoy celebrating cinema under the unique environment in the northernmost part of Europe, under the midnight sun.
We sincerely hope to see you all again in Sodankylä in June 2021!
In the meantime, we are working on various events that should enable us to keep you happy and entertained also in June 2020. We will keep you posted – and are looking forward to seeing you soon!
