    Utopia Project
    The movie picnic screenings will be preceded by a short film by young filmmakers.  Utopia, is a shared theme set for all productions but otherwise the makers have been given completely free creative reign. Helsinki Festival and the City of Helsinki have teamed up to hire ten young people for the project, a successor to last year’s hugely popular Tullaamo initiative that saw summer jobs provided to 30 young people.
