The Finnish Television Academy has revealed its nominees for this year’s Golden Venla Awards (Kultainen Venla) which celebrates outstanding achievements in the Finnish television industry.
Leading the field with four nominations is Rauhantekijä (Peacemaker), directed by AJ Annila (The Eternal Road), about a retired peace negotiator from the crisis response team at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs who is invited by the UN to lead an international conflict resolution process in Turkey.
The Golden Venla Awards are traditionally held in January but the coronavirus pandemic has prompted the Academy to postpone the event until Spring 2021, though an exact date has yet to be announced.
