Student films had success at Tampere Film Festival

Films by Tinja Ruusuvuori, Reetta Huhtanen, Tiia Kouvo and Lauri-Matti Parppei were awarded.
Untitled (Burned Rubber in Asphalt, 2018)

Tinja Ruusuvuori's documentary film Untitled (burned rubber on asphalt, 2018) was awarded three prizes in the National Competition of the Festival: the Main Prize at the category of films under 30 minutes, Student Award, and the film became the Tampere Nominee for European Audience Award. The documentary is “a portrait of a remote Northern place – where isolation and boredom breed an imaginative escape that turns everyday vehicles into instruments of art. Through an investigative approach the filmmaker elevates the activity from an immature pastime to a creative expression worthy of an artful consideration”.

Reetta Huhtanen’s documentary Aatos ja Amine (Gods of Molenbeek, 2019) was awarded the Church Media Foundation Prize and the Special Prize in the National Competition of over 30minute films. Juries emphasized the film’s philosophical value and its good-natured, even funny, but at the same time profound way in which it reflects the friendship and connection between people who are thinking differently and have different faiths.

The Special Prize in the National Competition of under 30 minutes films went to Tia Kouvo’s Mummola (Family Time, 2018) fiction, which is “a cleverly framed tragicomedy about a relatable experience heightened by dry humour and a well orchestrated ensemble, where everybody hits their mark”, as the National Jury described.

Lauri-Matti Parppei's film Hiljaa kuin murhaajat (Quietly like Murderers, 2019) was the favorite pick of the jury of the young.
