European Parliament and other political screenings

Every Face Has a Name is not only reaching cinema audiences and TV-viewers around the World. The film is currently screening at key political institutions and influencing policy makers.

European Parliament: We are happy to announce that Every Face Has a Name will screen in the European Parliament in Brussels on June 24th at 19.00. We appreciate the kind collaboration with The City of Malmö EU Office and we look forward to bring our film to the center of European politics.  

In connection with the screening Director Magnus Gertten states:
"My documentary shows when survivors from the German concentration camps arrive to the harbour of Malmö in April 1945 . The situation is similar to what’s happening all over the world today on a daily basis: War refugees arriving to a new country. During 2014 and the spring of 2015 thousands of war refugees and migrants have drowned in the Mediterranean on their way to Europe. For those who make it to the ports of southern Europe an uncertain future lies ahead. Right now this is one of the most important issues for the decision makers in the EU. If my film in any way could inspire the members of the European Parliament to make wise decisions based on humanistic values I would be a very happy film director.”

Swedish Cultural Committee: On May 21 The Swedish Film Institute gathered politicians of the National Cultural Committee for a one-day seminar on film politics. We are very proud that Swedish Film Institute included Every Face Has a Name in the program and screened it for all the involved politicians.   

We are currently working on more screenings in collaboration with more key political institutions including a screening at the Swedish Parliament and one with the Malmö City Council.

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.
