Emil Sallinen

Screenwriter, Director and Producer
Emil Sallinen (born 1988) has made shorts and documentaries since 2006 in both English, Swedish and Finnish. He has studied directing and screenwriting at the Finnish film school Arcada UAS 2009 – 2014 and graduated as a Bachelor of Arts. Sallinen’s short films and documentaries have been screened and awarded in over 30 festivals all over the globe. His works have also regularly been published on the Finnish public service channel YLE.
For most of his works, Sallinen has teamed up with his brother Artur Sallinen. The extraordinary way in which the twins can dispute and argue is a fruitful ground for great stories and ideas.
Sallinen’s films are influenced by Hollywood features, with the aim to wow and amaze the audience the same way he is swept away by large scale sci-fi, fantasy, drama and action. His aim as a passionate filmmaker is to take the audience on a journey and introduce them to new worlds and ideas in a visually compelling and innovative way. Apart from telling a deeply human story, Sallinen’s strength lies in his comprehension of productional realities, motivational skills and the ability of sharing his vision with the team he’s working with.
