Past events

October Filmfest was founded in 2009 when we noticed that there were a lot of films lying around collecting dust. Films that some filmmaker had put a lot of time and effort into, but never got the chance to show in public. With a zero-budget and less than two months to go, we found a nice venue – Ritz, five local films and one Swedish film, we did some marketing and we had created a film festival!

In 2011 October Filmfest was made a part of the newly formed non-profit association Film i Österbotten.

In the future, we hope that the festival will grow and become a bit more international. We will however stay true to our original concept, which is to primarily feature local filmmakers and films.
