Statistics and Research

Finnish Film Foundation is responsible for the compilation of official statistics on the film industry in Finland.

We produce comprehensive statistics on our own activities, the impact of public funding and on the production, distribution and exhibition of films in Finland. 

In addition, we produce and commission studies and reports on the film industry. Support for research projects benefiting the entire film industry can be applied for from the Support for the promotion of other film culture.

We adhere to the criteria and methodology defined by the European Audiovisual Observatory and are also involved in developing data gathering in the film sector within the European Film Agency Research Network EFARN.

In Finland, the library of the National Audiovisual Institute collects literature, theses and studies on the film and audiovisual sector.
