Savonlinna International Film Festival has announced eight nature and environment related films and events for this year. Themes for this year’s programme are sustainable travel and interspecies relationships. In the first line-up we have Nordic and Finnish premiers. In the events we offer unique opportunities to cruise on a tar steamer boat and join a bat watching and listening tour next to Olavinlinna castle. The festival will run for four days for the first time during 19.-22.8.2021. Tickets will go on sale in July!
