This is a note from director of Electrician Miina Alajärvi, sent to members of the Electrician group on Facebook:
I'm writing from my vacation in Sweden. Good news reach even here! The Electrician keeps on competing around the world!
The Electrician is competing for student film award in Kettupäivät (Finnish for "Fox Days"), an annual Finnish short and documentary film festival in Helsinki. The 26th Kettupäivät will take place from November 4 2009 until November 7 2009. They haven't announced the schedule yet, but I'm inviting everyone in Helsinki to come and see it to Andorra! I'll be there for sure.
