The International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography CAMERIMAGE is the greatest and most recognized festival dedicated to the art of cinematography and its creators - cinematographers. CAMERIMAGE contributes to the growth of cinematographers' prestige. The unconventional format of the Festival, which awards films according to their visual, aesthetic and technical values, has turned out to be an alternative for traditional film festivals.

The Festival also contains other events such as Student Etudes Competition, Documentary Films Competition and seminars and workshops led by the greatest modern cinematographers, directors and other filmmakers. The Festival proves to be a great forum not only for presentation but also for further development of international moviemaking. CAMERIMAGE helps young filmmakers and integrates the community of those already recognized, allowing them to explore new artistic areas.
 

ELO has three Screenings at the Festival: BEST OF ELO FILM SCHOOL HELSINKI

In the productions there is a considerable diversity, however in all films the style of visual narration strongly supports the storyline. Film as well as digital formats have been used widely. The cinematography students of the selected films are both Bachelor and Master degree students, all of them brave in creating their own signature. A certain "Nordic mood" is evident in many of the films which will be screened.

After several years of absence, Linda is returning home to attend her father’s funeral on the distant island of Ödeö. The closed community holds tightly to its past, maintaining its own outlook on life. Regardless of Linda’s efforts to keep her distance, Ödeö has a habit of getting under her skin.
