Academy of Moving People and Images is a platform founded by filmmaker Erol Mintaş, in Helsinki for mobile/moving people – those who have arrived in Finland for different reasons; be they displaced people, forced immigrants, students, asylum seekers, or employees.

We aim to design a new learning model and a sustainable pedagogical platform where people who have arrived in Finland from different backgrounds get to co-work/learn together. We dream to contribute and initiate change to re-build a discrimination-free film industry. One of the main goals is to give possibilities, tools, and skills of filmmaking to mobile people. Through the constant exchange of knowledge/experience between Finnish/mobile filmmakers and the new participants, we hope to see a film industry that is more open and diverse.
