Night Visions cancels its postponed edition

We are deeply saddened to be forced to announce that the edition of Night Visions International Film Festival that was originally supposed to take place in Helsinki, Finland in November 2020 has been cancelled. The unconstitutional restrictions on cultural sector in Southern Finland have forced the festival organization to move the dates of the planned festival event for seven times over the past nine months. As the prospects of the restrictions being lifted in the near future look slimmer by the day, the only realistic option is to pull the plug altogether for now.

All refunds for the tickets already bought are handled by the customer service of our exhibitor partner Finnkino. Please send an e-mail to to sort out the practicalities relating to the refunds. To speed the process up, please list the purchase number (listed in your purchase confirmation e-mail) OR the serial numbers in your individual screening tickets in your initial e-mail to Finnkino.

Over the next few months, Night Visions International Film Festival aims to organize one-off screenings and/or smaller festival events featuring highlights from the official selection of the cancelled edition of the festival. At the moment it is unfortunately too early to speculate on the dates and the venues of the upcoming screenings, as the unconstitutional restrictions on cinema industry in Southern Finland are preventing all economically viable business in the sector.
