The Finnish Film Foundation is the main financier of the Finnish cinema. It was established in 1969 to promote and support Finnish film production, the distribution and exhibition of films, and Finnish film culture.

Production support: The foundation’s main aim is to support Finnish film production. Support is granted to Finnish producers for development, production and marketing of Finnish feature, documentary and short films or international co-productions.

Finland participates in the EU Media Programme and Media Desk Finland operates under the auspices of the film foundation. Finland is also a member in the Nordisk Film&TV Fond and the Eurimages Fund.

The Finnish Film Foundation also grants support to Finnish cinemas, film import of specific value, and theatrical, video and DVD distribution.

International activities: The Finnish Film Foundation is responsible for the cultural export and promotion of Finnish films abroad. The international film festivals held in Finland, DocPoint–Helsinki Documentary Film Festival, Tampere Short Film Festival, Midnight Sun Film Festival, Espoo Ciné International Film Festival, Love&Anarchy Helsinki International Film Festival and Oulu Children’s Film Festival are supported by the Finnish Film Foundation.

Scandinavian Films, the umbrella organisation of the 5 Nordic Film Institutions, is one of the 10 founding members of EFP. The Finnish Film Foundation became an individual EFP member in 1998.
