Director Teemu Nikki

Teemu Nikki is a self-educated filmmaker and the son of a pig-farmer from Sysma, Finland. He has directed tens of short films and hundreds of commercials and music videos – and some feature films and TV shows, also. That makes him a genre-free and thus genre-enthusiastic director and storyteller. Teemu’s work has been shortlisted and awarded at Sundance Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, and more.
