HARBOUR OF HOPE HITS FESTIVALS

After the successful cinema release in Sweden with many outstanding reviews and an exceptional audience feedback, Harbour of Hope is now hitting the international festival circuit. The International Premiere will be at the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival, the second largest documentary festival in Europe.

The Thessaloniki Documentary Festival has chosen to highlighted Harbour of Hope by including the film among the ‘much-anticipated documentaries produced in 2011’ and states the following:


‘As such, the film functions not only as historical evidence, but as an astonishing story of human perseverance.’


The International Premiere at Thessaloniki Documentary Festival will be: Sunday, March 11th at 18:00 in the Stavros Tornes Theatre.


An additional screening of Harbour of Hope is scheduled for: Monday, March 12th at 20:30 at Olympion Theatre.


Director Magnus Gertten will be in Thessaloniki from Friday, March 9, giving interviews about Harbour of Hope. He will also be present at both screenings to talk about his work with the film and the many touching stories he has come across during the extensive research and the production of Harbour of Hope. 


Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival is the first stop on the international festival tour for Harbour of Hope. Among the other festivals included are Tempo Documentary Festival, BUFF Filmfestival and EuroDok. More festivals are confirmed and will soon be announced at 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.
