This year also Otakut organizes a group buy for Helsinki International Film Festival (18.-28.9.2014) tickets. We also offer our experienced suggestions (guesses) about what movies might be worth seeing. Please add your own suggestions to this wikipage.

Final program is published on 5.9. and ticket sales begins on 11.9. Our agents will be queuing the tickets since early morning. Tickets are purchased using series tickets, which brings the price of a single ticket to 6.40€. Reservations via IRC to Riba @IRCNet? or via email to mailto:risto.jarvinen@aalto.fi. Non-refundable reservations will have to be made day before the start of the ticket sales (10.9. 16:00).

Payment to bank account number FI78? 1007 3500 0881 46. Kiitos hyvin moni. Our agent purchased a total of 132 tickets on the opening morning.

Note: Most of the movies are in the original language (no dubs) and have English subtitles. Finnish movies usually also have subtitles, with possible exception of Finnish dubbed movies for children.
