Finnish Film Foundation’s yearly statistics publication includes data on the Foundation’s support, film production, distribution and gender equality.
The latest Facts & Figures looks at the success of Finnish films internationally, both at festivals and in cinema distribution. We also examine what countries are represented among the films distributed in Finland both commercially in cinemas and at festivals.
The gender statistics include data on the producers, directors and scriptwriters of the films that received production support in 2022. Data is available by genre. Gender statistics for Finnish films screened at international festivals are also available.
