Let’s Create a Project!

AV-arkki – The Center for Finnish Media Art has received Next Generation EU Funding 2022–2023 to build a project plan and a network for a European programme, where artists and producers of artists’ moving image and media arts develop international collaboration, co-productions and distribution in interaction with the fields of film, visual arts and media.

AV-arkki has named producer Tuuli Penttinen-Lampisuo from Poike Productio to coordinate:

  1. Piloting an international pitching forum for artists’ moving image and media arts in collaboration with film festivals, and expanding DAMI – Developing Artists’ Moving Image Network;
  2. Finding partners for a Creative Europe project and co-incubating a Creative Europe application together, in interaction with the DAMI network and its field knowledge.

The need and motivation has risen from learnings and benchmarking in international film forums, which effectively promote and strengthen the film industry, international finance, co-productions, distribution and the film-makers’ skills and networks. Such structures are mostly missing in the fields of artists’ moving image and media arts.

Simultaneously, media arts are infected by the same mega trends as film, such as Brexit, climate change, MeToo, pandemic, and challenges concerning financing in various countries.

Media art organizations are typically small and artist-driven, whereas production companies typically struggle with workload and lack of labor. Both operate on the borderlands of film, visual art and media, needing a wide range of understanding in cross-sectorial practices. The field of media arts and artists’ moving image needs more producers and production companies with different scales and profiles, also those with the will and capacity to grow bigger.

DAMI – Developing Artists’ Moving Image Network builds on peer-learning, interest in co-productions, sustainability and new channels and possibilities in distribution. The network is meant to be a safe forum for professionals in artists’ moving image and media arts productions to share questions, knowledge and visions.

DAMI – Developing Artists’ Moving Image Network operates in three ways

  • Newsletters
  • Meetings within film festivals
  • Meetings on-line

Rescue and Recovery Facility

The Sustainable Growth Programme for Finland supports growth that is ecologically, socially and economically sustainable in line with the aims of the Government Programme.

The NGEU is divided into seven instruments, of which the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) is the largest.
