1993: Expanding festival
|Espoo Ciné 1993 attracted 16,600 film enthusiasts. The main theme of
the Festival was European Cinema, and films were screened within nine
programmes. In addition, the Festival presented the four most important
festival visitors’ – Claude Miller, Pilar Miró, Detlev Buck and Ingemo
Engström – miniretrospectives. Olavi Similä from the Finnish Film
Archive assembled a François Truffaut film poster exhibition for the
festival audience to enjoy. |
Besides films and exhibitions,
festival visitors also found their way to the beer tent pitched in
front of the Espoo Cultural Centre. According to a festival legend,
some of the most passionate film enthusiasts stayed in the tent
overnight (and kept watch over the beer tanks) in order to be able to
briskly face the cinematic adventures of the new day.
