Tampere Film Festival

One of Europe's most important short film festivals.

The Tampere Film Festival is held for 5 days, across 10 venues, every March. It's is one of the most important European short film festivals and is accredited by the film producers' society.

With 30,000 people attending in 2019, the festival is growing year on year since it started in 1969. There are around 400 films shown each year with supporting seminars and other activities.

It's a lesser known attraction that will appeal to film fans as something a bit different, well worth a visit.

Getting here by train

Tampereen Rautatieasema station lies right in the city centre, making travel to the festival venues relatively straight-forward. There are bus stops and a taxi rank directly outside for those happier to be taken there, but as it's all in close proximity, walking from the station is a great way to explore whilst en route.
