Finnish Film Foundation supports Snapper’s upcoming features

Two of Snapper’s feature film projects have been granted development support of 40.000 Euros by the Finnish Film Foundation.

HELLA W is a biopic about Hella Wuolijoki, Finland’s most complex and widely talented woman of influence. Scripted by Outi Nyytäjä and helmed by Juha Wuolijoki, the film recounts the true story of the internationally acclaimed businesswoman, playwright and politician, who is determined to leave her mark on the European psyche – in more than one place.

ELLA is a heart-warming and hilariously funny family film based on the best-selling Finnish children’s books by author Timo Parvela.

Both films will be theatrically released in Finland in 2010.
