The Department of Film, Television and Scenography ELO is part of the School of Arts, Design and Architecture at Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland’s only film university. Producing both fiction and documentary films, it focuses on the visual aspect and the film language of its projects, digital ones as well as those shot on raw film material.
