Tampere Art Factory 09 Online - Part One

Our annual festival - Tampere Art Factory (TAF) - was in May, but much of the student works seen there are still visible online. In this posting we present the films that were shown at TAF which can be understood without knowledge of Finnish language or with subtitles in English.

In our blog in Finnish we have published a story with presentations of all TAF films with websites and/or trailers online and/or the entire film online.
This blog will later publish stories about TAF fine art work, animations, music videos etc. online.
