4th Pori Film Festival — experimental
Festival dates: November 28–December 2nd, 2018

Pori Film Festival is a non-competitive film festival and happening that celebrates the diversity of cinema. We are looking for interesting experiments, energetic expressions, essayistic beauty and sharp-minded manifestations that reveal the overwhelming capability of the audiovisual medium to create and investigate realities. Pori Film Festival is a laboratory, a good party and a journey to the unknown territories of existance and audiovisual alchemy!

This annual festival is organized for the third time by independent and non-profit cultural associations with experience in multidisciplinary happenings, audio/visual arts, music and performative arts in Pori, west coast of Finland.
