There will be two residencies offered in 2020, and the Head of the International S�mi Film Institute (ISFI ), Anne Lajla Utsi (pictured above), will be M?oriland's first filmmaker in residence. Anne is a champion of S�mi filmmaking, a sector that has grown from strength to strength through her work at the helm of the ISFI.
