Cinema Mondo 20th Anniversary

A party at Corona-Baari and Dubrovnik, 8 April 2010.

The Finnish film distribution company Cinema Mondo was founded in 1990 by Pekka Lanerva, Matti Paunio, and Mika Siltala. The lineup now is Mika Siltala (ceo), Susanna Peevo, Antti Suonio, and Ville Purjo. For 20 years now Cinema Mondo has been at the vanguard of modern art cinema distribution in Finland, distributing works by artists such as Roy Andersson, Gregg Araki, Catherine Breillat, Tsui Hark, Peter Jackson, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Wong Kar-Wai, Kim Ki-Duk, Hanif Kureishi, Julio Medem, Hayao Miyazaki, Errol Morris, Gaspar Noé, Kevin Smith, Todd Solondz, John Woo, and Edward Yang, and classic films from directors such as Jean-Luc Godard and Nagisa Oshima.

A great party with a who's who of the Finnish film scene, and an Asian menu named by the titles of Wong Kar-Wai films.
