West Finland offers easily accessible diverse landscapes and filming possibilities throughout the year. We are home to the densest archipelago in the world, comprising of more than 20,000 islands just off the coast. The region has stunning rugged coastal and island terrain. We are also in close proximity to idyllic countryside locations, as well as untainted and mystical forests.

Our region’s capital, Turku, is Finland’s oldest, most European city. The beautiful River Aura is set against a lovely medieval-meets-modern city milieu. Our region enjoys all four seasons. Summers are pleasantly warm (up to around 28°C) with almost 20 hours of sunlight, while winters usually drop to about -10°C with about 6 hours of daylight and 2-3 months of snow.

The West Finland Film Commission’s area covers two regions: Turku region and Salo region. Turku region covers together 11 cities and municipalities: Turku, Kaarina, Lieto, Masku, Mynämäki, Naantali, Nousiainen, Paimio, Raisio, Rusko and Sauvo. With the Salo region, one needs to negotiate the production support separately, but the WFFC will be at your service. Both regions offer an endless variety of locations within short distances.

Don’t hesitate to let us know more about location needs for your production. And remember, the film commission offers productions three days of location scouting free of charge.
