New Creative Cooperations
Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux builds bridges for actors in culture, art and science.
The Finnish Institute in London launches the TelepART funding programme starting from 5 April 2017. TelepART helps emerging Finland-based performing artists showcase their work internationally. The rapid-access style funding is designed to support the expenses for artists travelling to the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Benelux countries.
Aki Kaurismäki’s latest film ’The Other Side of Hope’ opened recently in movie theatres in the Benelux. In Kaurismäki’s typical style, the film has a deep humane undertone. It bravely explores difficult topics of our time such as the plight of refugees, loneliness and deprivation. The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux had the opportunity to interview the film’s lead actors following a preview in Brussels.
