from the Red Sea and Norway when once he had the opportunity to film underwater killer whales while
they preying on herring. His first encounter with sharks was also very impressive.
Although his current working fields in production are widely expanded in other areas too, Jukka’s respect

difficult. He believes that nature films can help us people to understand better who we are and how we are

Hei,Viikonloppuna Petteri Saarion Erämaan lumo-sarjan osa 2: Luonnon paranta voima, sai toisen palkinnon
pohjoismaisten elokuvien sarjassa.Petteri soitti minulle eilen asiasta ja toivoi että läöhettäisin ohjelman myös
muille festivaaleille.Sikis kysynkin nyt: Saako Yle käyttää logoanne ohjelman markkinointinsa yhteydessä?
Lähinnä kyseeseen tulisi muita kv-kilpailufestivaaleja sekä kv-myynnin käyttö.

Ystävällisinterveisin,

Dear Wildlife Vaasa Festival-International Nature Film Festival,

Congratulations! Your festival has ranked as one of the Top 100 Best Reviewed Festivals on
FilmFreeway for the month of October! According to reviews from real FilmFreeway users, your
festival ranks in the top 2.5% of among more than 4,000 film festivals and creative contests around
the world. No doubt, this ranking is a testament to the countless hours of hard work and care that
you and your staff have devoted to creating such a wonderful event.

We’re especially proud to be partnered with amazing events like yours that help independent film
continue to thrive.

Congratulations again and thank you!

Your friends at FilmFreeway,

Film makers reviews:

Kamen Sway The festival organizers were very communicative and accommodating.

Herman It was a well organized festival, with a fine eye for detail. Great staff and crew.
Marynissen

Denise It was a nice, intimate festival in a beautiful area. I do wish they would have played
Dragiewicz more indie films rather than so many high-budget "made-for-television" films.

Seyit Ali great film festival for short movies.
YAPRAKCI

Wildlife Vaasa was just great! The only thing I missed was a chance to listen to the
film makers' own presentations of their films. But on the other hand we had good
Björn Obenius talks beside the arena.

Your film festival was an exceptionally positive experience for a film maker with a
Päivi Kapiainen- unique possibility for networking with colleagues from all over the world. In addition,
Heiskanen the social program was of great quality. It is remarkable that audience can see films
free and you have lots of activities at schools as well. With some more marketing
efforts e.g. using social media, I am sure you could draw the attention of both the
international visitors and wider numbers of Finnish visitors.
