The film festival in Rauma is known as a conversational festival, where the
audience and film makers meet. On Saturday it will be possible to see some
of the invited film stars in the market place. As many of the films carry
the theme of immigration, the ’market parliament’ will be discussing the
films from the perspective of the theme ’Far From Home’.
