Use of films
KAVI owns approximately 450 films – more than a quarter of all full-length films that have ever been produced in Finland. KAVI’s catalogue includes the full-length feature films produced by Suomi-Filmi and Suomen Filmiteollisuus, the screening rights to Teuvo Tulio’s films, and the entire output of Fenno-Filmi.
KAVI’s deposit agreement requires us to monitor the use of depositors’ materials and provide advice related to those materials as needed. Before any materials (film prints, film transfers, stills, etc.) can be released for use outside the archive, the customer must first obtain the permission of the film distributor, depositor, or rightsholder for their intended use.
KAVI manages and mediates the sale of deposited materials with the owner’s permission and redirects customers to third party rightsholders if necessary.
