Tampere Film Agency was founded in 2017 with the aim of providing a platform for acquiring quality Finnish short films for screenings. In late 2019, we broadened our services, starting to extend our distribution and festival strategy services to Nordic and Baltic short films in addition to Finnish short films.

The Agency is run by Tampere Film Festival, one of the oldest and most respected short film festivals in the world. Our background helps us understand everybody’s needs better, affording us with decades of experience, knowledge and contacts. We are here to help filmmakers find the right kind of exposure for their films, and to help festivals and other end users find the films.

Tampere Film Agency is working in collaboration with the Finnish Film Foundation. Our aim is to continue with distribution after the Foundation's primary responsibilities end. We can also provide filmmakers services that the Foundation does not have resources to offer.
