National Audiovisual Institute Launches 4k Streaming Service
On 3 December, the National Audiovisual Institute (KAVI) in Helsinki launched a greatly expanded streaming service at elonet.finna.fi.
The key addition are 200+ Finnish feature films which are now available for streaming anywhere in the world for free. The bulk of these films are available at Ultra HD resolution but all feature titles are in at least HD quality.
The number of films available for streaming will grow in the coming years because in all, KAVI owns about 450 feature film titles. This number is about a quarter of all feature films ever produced in Finland.
Additionally, Elonet hosts thousands of advertising, documentary, and other short films. All war-time newsreels and the full series of 700 Finlandia newsreels are available for watching.
Elonet was originally launched in 2006 as a filmographic database. In 2018, KAVI built its own view to the national online finna service of archives museums and libraries, and this week, the elonet brand moved to Finna.
