Business Opportunities in the Creative Industries
Rovaniemi is the urban pulsating heart of Lapland with a strong creative cluster.
Creative madness, magic and storytelling have always been part of the lives of people living in the very north of Finland. Extreme climatic conditions such as the mystical twilight of the winter and the midnight sun of the summer help to explain the different mentality. Lapland is really a “country in a country”.
With highly visible and internationally recognised companies Rovaniemi can “punch” well above its weight.
Productions made in Rovaniemi include:
Films, commercials and music videos
Games and mobile content
Design, art and handicrafts
The following enabling conditions make Rovaniemi an excellent location:
Santa’s Technology Park, located right next to the international airport, is the centre for film, game, content production, and design companies.
The University of Lapland, as well as Rovaniemi and Kemi-Tornio Universities of Applied Sciences with degree programmes in art, design and film bring constantly fresh talent and ambition to the region whose population grows steadily. 40% of Finnish diplomas of masters of art are delivered by the Faculty of the Art and Design of the University of Lapland.
Finnish Lapland Film Commission
is located in Rovaniemi and enables foreign companies to make productions in the very special light and nature conditions prevailing in Lapland.
Wide international networks.
Business connections with places as varied as Hollywood, Iceland and Korea give creative companies the possibility to leverage their skills on the international stage.
