Helmet Film Challenge 2022

The Film Challenge invites and challenges you to broaden your horizons and to look for new experiences on film: the classics, cult favorites – or perhaps, the films that you have been meaning to watch for a long time.

The Film Challenge is a playful and joyful watching project where you choose films to watch from the list of 50 different subjects. Anyone can take part. You can proceed at your own pace or you can follow the given order week by week. You can re-watch your favorite film, or you can step out of your comfort zone and exposure yourself to something new and unfamiliar – it’s up to you!

The Film Challenge is about sharing. It’s more fun to tackle the watching project with other people and you are heartily encouraged to ask your friends to join the Helmet Film Challenge Facebook group where you can talk about the most intense, bizarre, and gripping films you watch during the year. Mind you, the discussions are mostly in Finnish, but you can also start one in English.

Having problems of finding suitable films for the challenge? Go visit your library or check the Film Challenge Facebook group. The library staff or other participants will help you.

Let the movies move you – take up the Film Challenge!
