Petri Kemppinen

I am an independent film and TV consultant, working internationally with financing and development, policies and training, through my company P1 Kemppinen. I evaluate content, train professionals and consult on policies. My skills in film and TV financing and project development stem from reading thousands of scripts and watching as many rough cuts. I have been giving notes and assessing financing and development plans in several roles during my career of 25 years. I have an MA in Communication Studies from University of Helsinki, a background in culture journalism and publishing before starting my film and television career at YLE in the mid-1990s and serving later at The Finnish Film Foundation (2005-2013) and as CEO of Nordisk Film & TV Fond (2013-2019). After that I wanted to establish my own business. I have been a member of Eurimages' Board of Management 2006-2013. I have initiated workshops like Nordic Genre Boost and Nordic Distribution Boost and worked for training organisations like EAVE. Now, besides P1 Kemppinen, I am a board member at the Swedish Film Institute and EWA Network.
