Infrastructure and crews

Finland has a small but respected film industry. Experienced crews are available,as well as good production services and filming equipment. The country is yet to develop world-class studio facilities but international producers come to Finland primarily for its unique filming locations.


Locations range from Finland’s famous lakes (more than 187,000 of them) to Cold War looks or urban chic in parts of Helsinki, and the snowy climes of Lapland.
