Film Front Festival 2022

Cultural Centre of Novi Sad
Katolička porta 5, Novi Sad, Serbia



There Is No Planet B is a compilation of seven short films and video art works made by Finnish media artists. The artists are members of Artists’ Association MUU. The program will be shown at the 20th Film Front Festival in Novi Sad, Serbia. The festival has been the first and most important event to promote the development of independent short film in Serbia.

Novi Sad is the European Capital of Culture 2022.

MUU’s program will be presented at the festival by MUU’s director Timo Soppela, editor in chief of Kaltio Paavo J. Heinonen and artist Annika Rauhala. The visit to Novi Sad will also develop European route E75 art project, that will be part of Oulu European Capital of Culture program for 2026. MUU is a Finnish organisation, founded 1987, and contemporary art centre based in Helsinki, Finland.

The program has borrowed it’s title from the work by Leena Kela, one of the artists of the series. The subjects the artists deal in their works are, among others, global environmental crisis,  militarization, political control, mental health, loneliness and social exclusion. In addition to these heavy themes, however, the works show hope, appreciation for life, and belief that personal positive actions can bring change.
