Movie contest voting is open and Nuuksio Classic Trail Marathon announced a trail running related short film contest that attracted 14 submissions. This is far beyond what the organizers expected. Excellent! It is great to see all these inspiring films that radiate love for trails, nature and running.

The jury that consists of well-known movie and TV professionals Teemu Hostikka, Joel Rahkonen and Riku Riihilahti will evaluate the films by November 14. You can vote for your own favorite between Nov 3-13. The winners will be announced on Friday Nov 18.

What would be a better way to brighten the dark November evenings than to watch the films!

Introduction and links to the movies is here.

The same team brings the international Trails in Motion film festival show to Helsinki on Thursday Nov 10. If you are around and want to join, read more here.
