Midnight Sun Film Festival : Have you ever watched a movie under the Lapland midnight sun?
The Midnight Sun Film Festival (MSFF) was founded in 1986 by Finnish filmmakers, including the Kaurismäki brothers, and the Municipality of Sodankylä. The village of Sodankylä is located in the heart of Finnish Lapland, some 120 kilometres above the Arctic Circle, where in summer the sun never sets. For its atmosphere alone, MSFF is one of the most unique film festivals in the world. Today the event is widely recognised and valued domestically and internationally due to its originality and unique features. It is a prime example of how geographical challenges can be turned into opportunities through strategic planning and original ideas.
