Tampere Film Festival brings together over 30,000 film enthusiasts, be it professionals or amateurs, every year in March. Tampere Film Festival is ranked amongst the top three most important short film festivals in the world.
Short Film Competitions
The heart of the programme is formed by International and National Short Film Competitions. The festival receives approximately 4000 submissions annually. Out of those, an estimated 110 films from 40 countries are selected.
The International Competition is amongst the most acknowledged short film competitions in the world. Tampere Film Festival’s International Competition is an Oscar®, BAFTA and EFA qualifying short film competition, meaning the world’s most trusted film organisations let us nominate films for their award categories. The National Competition showcases current feature-length documentaries alongside Finnish short films and is one of the most important platforms for Finnish filmmakers.
