Character House is a Helsinki-based independent production company that produce film and series with a focus on character driven stories.


The company was founded in 2018 by producer Mia Palmgren and screenwriter Krista Hannula. The company’s first feature film Äiti (A Mother) had its theatrical release in Finland spring 2019. The independent film was received very well by critics, and the films main actress Jaana Saarinen received a Jussi Gaala nomination for Best Actress in 2020. Our more recent work include feature film Luottomies-elokuva: All In (Wingman the movie), cozy tv-series Terapiatreffit (Therapy dates) and animated shortfilm Silkesapans skratt (Silkmonkey's Laughter).

We have a strong focus on co-development and co-production, and collaborate with other production companies on many different levels. For us, character is everything - both when it comes to the stories we tell, and the people we work with.
