Finally getting legit this year by turning 21 and mature, Night Visions International Film Festival is still extremely proud to hold its position as Scandinavia’s biggest festival focusing on fantasy, horror, thriller, science fiction and action films. Just like a year ago, the event conquers a total of three screens for four consequtive days and culminates in an all-nighter at the Kinopalatsi cinema in the very heart of Helsinki, Finland.

The official selection of a total of 43 feature films, complemented with a handful of carefully picked shorts, is one of the strongest in the history of the festival. The showcase of new titles includes an exceptionally high number of most significant genre-related hits from world’s most prestigious film festivals, including highlights of Sundance, Cannes, Venice and Toronto. On the retro side, we are extremely proud to turn the spotlight on the incredible careers of the American director-producer legend Mark L. Lester and the Swedish genre icon Christina Lindberg, both of whom will be joining us in Helsinki to enjoy the unique Night Visions atmosphere.

Do as they do, come and join us to enjoy the cream of the crop of international cinema in Helsinki on the last week of November!

Night Visions International Film Festival is arranged by a non-profit organization Night Visions – Yön Kuvat ry. The event is supported by the Finnish Film Foundation and the Cultural Office of the city of Helsinki, among others.


Individual tickets are available from all Finnkino cinemas and the website starting on Friday, November 3rd, 2017. All-nighter passes for the night of Saturday, November 25th (including one ticket to 7 consequtive screenings) as well as HardCore passes (including one ticket per each screening slot during the entire festival, a total of 20+ tickets) are sold only in the Kinopalatsi cinema in Helsinki (street address: Kaisaniemenkatu 2).


All titles in the lineup have a dialogue track or subtitles in English, with the exception of the Christina Lindberg classic Rötmånad, which unfortunately has the dialogue track in Swedish and subtitles only in Finnish.
