Forest Cinema | Intsikurmu

Forest Cinema

friday 05.08

The Raigo Saariste’s Forest Cinema will once again be found in the Intsikurmu forest park.

The Forest Cinema’s programme is tied together by the theme of Forest and Forest-like Environments. The representation of forests in films may be as simple as it being the background of the film or it can be part of telling the film’s story or it may be the main character.

The programme is diverse, consisting of stories from various genres and different continents. The goal is to put focus on the importance of the forest and how its beauty self-explanatorily finds its way to the big screen. What would happen if the forest was gone one day? What will we use as background? What will be self-explanatory then?

The forest themed programme consists of 18 films which include full length movies and various short films.
