Annika Grof has graduated from University of Industrial Design and Art Helsinki, department of Film. She has been working as a director, scriptwriter and developer in film, tv and commercial productions since 2006. As a filmmaker, Annika has the power to show even the strangest nuances of the human mind and combine them into a very natural film ensemble.

Annika’s latest film works are a timeless epoch fiction There Will Be Spring (2020), that got its international premiere at Midnight Sun Film Festival in June 2021 and the latest feature is a edgy and popping collage documentary The Other Voice (2022) that reflects the tragic situation of the university to the recent past’s national political twists and turns. One of her well known film is Within Limits (2009) is already considered a Finnish documentary classic. Currently Annika is writing her new feature fiction Jone Boy.

Today I was honored to receive Hermes award for the film we made with @tarasowfilms about university politics in Finland, The Other Voice. The award was given by Käänne, a community of academics of University of Helsinki.

In my speech I said:
"Kiitos Käänne - ryhmälle, jotka olette jaksaneet ja yhä jaksatte taistella yliopisto-demokratian, vapaan tutkimuksen ja elokuvataiteenkin mahdollistavan sivistysyhteiskunnan puolesta."

Sometimes film art matters ❤️🎥
