Uneton48 is the largest filmmaking challenge in Scandinavia. Annually 150 teams, more than 2000 filmmakers, make a film in 48 hours. Sense 2008 more than 1000 short films have been made as part of the event, and premiered in Finnkino cinemas.

In addition to the main annual event in May, Uneton48 has things happening around the year.

In January we co-organize a documentary film challenge with DocPoint called Uneton48 Docs.

In November, Uneton will for the first time launch the Independent Helsinki Film Festival, which brings the best domestic and international independent films to Helsinki.

We work with and have worked with brands like: Finnkino, Yle Areena, Free laskutus, Paulig, REDI Shopping Center, Elisa Viihde, Genelec, HEO, Angel Films, Lightneer, Kamppi Shopping Center, City of Helsinki.

Collaboration possibilities with Uneton48 are almost limitless! In addition to traditional media coverage, we have done content production campaigns, run film schools open to all, organized underground dances and made a long movie in 48 days.
