History of Espoo Ciné

Espoo Ciné International Film Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary this year! The first impulse for the activity was given in November 1987 when Ilkka Kalliomäki, Pertti Artell, Vesa Ville Mattila, Liisa Suominen and Peter Toiviainen founded the organization Espoon elokuvanystävät (”Espoo film lovers”) with the aim to start off a film festival in Tapiola. In 1990, this idea was realized as the first Espoo Ciné took place.
