HARBOUR OF HOPE BEGINS FESTIVAL TOUR

While still running in selected Swedish cinemas, Harbour of Hope is now launched on an international festival tour. The Swedish festival premiere will be at the Göteborg International Film Festival and the international premiere at the Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival in Greece.

After a successful fall period in Swedish cinemas, Harbour of Hope will now start reaching an international audience. First step is circulating the international film festivals. The Swedish festival premiere is set for the Göteborg International Film Festival happening on January 27 to February 6.


Following the screening in Gothenburg is the international premiere of Harbour of Hope, which is set for Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival happening on March 9 – 18 in Greece. The festival is among the biggest audience documentary festivals in Europe.


Upon the announcement of the international premiere of Harbour of Hope Director Magnus Gertten states:


Following the many good reviews and great audience response Harbour of Hope has had in Sweden, I am looking forward to start meeting an international audience at Thessaloniki Documentary Festival. It has been my privilege to have one of my previous films screened there and I look forward to having the international premiere of Harbour of Hope at this great festival.


Göteborg International Film Festival and Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival are the two first stops on the international festival tour, which Harbour of Hope will have. More festivals will be announced after the international premiere. To stay updated on future screening you can go to the Harbour of Hope Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/HarbourOfHope


Proud co-producer

Auto Images has definitely no problem in using the expression ’a proud co-producer’. We have been a partner and co-producer in several succesful international documentary projects these last years.

In October 2013 our Finnish co-production The Punk Syndrome (Mouka Filmi, Helsinki) won Prix Europa for The Best European TV Documentary. Our Norwegian co-prod Bravehearts (Til Ungdommen, Sant og Usant) received a Special Commendation in Prix Europa’s category Best Intercultural TV Programme. Both doc’s has received international film festival awards.

During 2014 our next co-production with Mouka Filmi in Helsinki will be released. It’s Once I Dreamt of Life, a very personal film about suicide, directed by Jukka Kärkkäinen and Sini Liimatainen, produced by Sami Jahnukainen. Part of this project is also Alias Films in Berlin.
