Finnish Rock Group Lordi Lands Film Funding

The film Dark Floors is a horror film being produced by Lordi, Finnish rockers that won the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest. The film is not only being shot in Finland, but also contains a cast that is largely Finnish. The government there has contributed 300,000 euros (over $400,000) towards the overall production cost of 4.2 million euros (over $5.6 million). This contribution is more than a symbolic gesture, it shows the governments intent to support local film ventures in Finland. The recent buzz on the film at the Cannes Film Festival only adds to the potential success of the project and growth of the Finnish film industry.
