TIME TO REGISTER AS OBSERVER AT THE FINANCING FORUM 2019!

As every year, our Opening Day is jampacked with inspirational slots. As a new facet to the Forum, we present a track on Immersive and Digital Factual.

New Business Opportunities: 

Collaboration with museums and other public institutions, seems to offer an array of new business opportunities for content producers. In our opinion, this will most probably count even more so for collaborations on content, that is created to attract and engage Young Audiences. This is why we are deeply interested in Digital Art and Immersive Experiences, since they seem to increasingly play a part in museums and galleries. We are therefore excited to be able to highlight a brilliant case of Immersive Experiences outside our own sphere:

Site specific immersive merge of art and digital technology: teamLab:Massless

We invite you to meet Helsinki’s contemporary art museum Amos Rex’ curator Itha O’Neill, who organized the museums' inaugural exhibition teamLab:Massless, created by Tokyo-based interdisciplinary art collective teamLab, when she speaks about the collaboration with teamLab and Digital Art and Immersive Experiences.

SUCCESS FOR EARLIER PITCHED PROJECTS

Stupid Young Heart pitched at The Financing Forum in 2017 by Tuffi Films, Finland – selected for Generation 14+ at Berlinale 2019!

Stupid Young Heart is about the first love between the skinny and carefree Lenni and the gorgeous and popular Kiira. Not yet in a relationship, nor out of high school, they discover that they are expecting a baby. They suddenly have to deal with grown up problems of pregnancy, while extreme right ideas begin to encroach on their multicultural neighborhood.
