Clean-up movie night on the shore of the Baltic Sea

Mustikkamaanpolku 2, 00570 Helsinki
Mustikkamaa beach

Come and celebrate the Baltic Sea and spend an unforgettable movie night in nature!

Since 2019, the SATAKOLKYT project has encouraged the citizens of Helsinki to spend time at the beach while also picking up trash. The project is coming to an end in the summer of 2022, so we are inviting all citizens to join us in celebrating the important work we have done on behalf of a healthy Baltic Sea! The event will spread across the Mustikkamaa beach and Mustikkamaa Summer Theatre.    

PROGRAMME (the detailed schedule will be updated later in the summer):   

5–7.30 pm, Mustikkamaa beach
We will do our bit to protect the Baltic Sea by picking up trash in a beach clean-up event in cooperation with Luonto-Liitto. You can also enjoy a fun programme at the beach, such as learning to make Baltic Sea-friendly natural cosmetics yourself. 

7.30 pm onwards, the Mustikkamaa Summer Theatre
The evening will be crowned by an open-air screening of the film “The Truffle Hunters”. The screening will be preceded by a panel discussion on environmental action (in Finnish). Please arrive on time! The audience can enjoy the treats of a pop-up café, Mustikkamaan kesäkahvila, run by young people.  

You are welcome to participate in the programme at the beach, come and enjoy only the movie experience or spend your whole evening at the event! Please bring warm clothes to wear after the sun goes down. You may also want to bring some cash or download MobilePay to pay for the treats at the café. The event is part of the Baltic Sea Day, coordinated by the John Nurminen Foundation. The event is free of charge and open to everyone.   

The event is organized by the SATAKOLKYT project in cooperation with the City of Helsinki Youth Services, 4H Helsinki, Pop Up Kino Helsinki and Luonto-Liitto. More information: 

Executive produced by Call Me By Your Name´s Luca Guadagnino, this enchanting, Oscar short-listed documentary dives into the shrouded-in-mystery profession of truffle hunting. Filmmakers Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw, whose previous film The Last Race examined the completely different sub-culture of stock car racing, have created a funny, charming, very human insight into an almost defunct skill. It never really punches you between the eyes but, through thoughtful, clever filmmaking, it does what many great documentaries do — provides a glimpse into a world you previously knew nothing about — to deliver an entertaining, if melancholy, portrait of a dying way of life.  

ADDRESS: Mustikkamaa beach: Mustikkamaanpolku 2 / Mustikkamaa Summer Theatre: Mustikkamaankuja 1.

The 4 accessible parking spaces and the pick-up and drop-off area are located in the parking area over 200 m from the beach and 100 m from the theatre.

The thearte: the route to the entrance is smooth and sufficiently wide.   

The Baltic Sea Day, launched and coordinated by the John Nurminen Foundation, is celebrated every year on the last Thursday in August with various rallies and events. The goal of the theme day is to highlight important marine themes, and encourage people to take concrete action for the Baltic Sea. The Day celebrates the versatility and immeasurable value of the Sea. Moreover, the celebration seeks to disseminate information on marine nature, culture, and history. In 2022 the Baltic Sea Day is celebrated on August 25th.
