About The Event
Kalajoki Film Fest sets in the coastal town Kalajoki, Finland. The Festival was born in 2019, being the first edition only dedicated to Portuguese movies (short and featured). We aim to continue throughout the years being prepared to vary nationalities. If you are not Portuguese pay attention to the next edition!
Kalajoki means Fish-River; the reason of the logo of the Festival is not random, is not for being related with movies about Fish, but because of the relation with town's name.
What makes the difference about this movie theater is not how it is, but where it's located! The main auditorium, Virta-Sali, is located in the building Kauppakeskus Merta, which has also a Library! Yes, you get it, you need to cross the library to see the movies!
The closing ceremony of the Festival will be outside in prepared place for screenings and presentations around hotels and restaurant area.
