Savonlinna International Film Festival is working towards making the festival more accessible to everyone. To this page we've gathered the accessibility information of the venues, where to inform us, if you need assistance at the screening and where to book a free ticket for your personal assistant. The Savonlinna International Nature Film Festival will be held in Savonlinna on 17.-20.8.2023.



Olavinkatu 34, Savonlinna

Kulttuurikellari's restaurant upstairs is completely accessible and is located by the main entrance. The seminar is held upstairs. Upstairs also has an accessible toilet. Kulttuurikellari is in two floors with steps. Therefore, we can't guarantee fully accessible passage to all areas. You can access downstairs, where the screenings are held,  through the courtyard assisted through few steps.

This cosy and welcoming venue has an accessible street-level bar-cafe and downstairs there's the elegant main hall that can seat up to 220 people. The venue has previously worked as a film theatre and it suits well for nature film screenings. Upstairs at the street-level we host the discussions and art exhibitions. Aligned with the current restrictions, the capacity at downstairs is 80 seats (subject to changes). 


Punkaharjuntie 3, Savonlinna

You can access Killa with wheelchair through the main entrance located on the courtyard of the building. Killa has two wheelchair spaces.

One of the Savonlinna's current movie theatres is acting as one of our festival's venues and it can seat up to 139 (+ 2 spaces for wheelchairs) nature film enthusiasts. Aligned with the current restrictions, the current capacity is 30 seats (subject to changes). 



The Savonlinna museum and Lake Saimaa nature centre building is accessible, and the museum has one disabled parking spot. The museum boats are not accessible for customers with a wheelchair. Movie picnic is held in the Riihisaari courtyard by accessible pavement. The yard is partly rocky.

On these rocks we host the beloved outdoor movie picnic and project movies to the wall of the Lake Saimaa Nature and Museum centre. The Riihisaari island is close to Olavinlinna, so by following the signs to Savonlinna's medieval castle, you'll find your way to the picnic.
