We couldn’t produce this festival without the help and support of Local and International businesses here in Tampere.
The improvAcademy is our main Production Partner, offering FiiF the ability to use their offices, staff, and expertise.
Without their help, FiiF would not be possible!
The improvAcademy is an English Language Improv Training & Production center in Tampere, Finland.
We have been operating in Downtown Tampere for the 4 years, and aim to generate as many new players, shows, and events to Finland as possible.
In addition to training improvisers, we produce ComedyO’Connell’s, a weekly English Language Comedy show.
We have held our shows in the stunning Ylioppilasteatteri nearly every year of FiiF.
We are thrilled to be back at TaYT this year!
Tampereen Ylioppilasteatteri is an amateur theatre located in a beautiful old cinema close to the city centre.
The theatre was established in 1960 and is still very active providing numerous shows from classic and modern theatre to improvisation and stand-up comedy through-out the year.
The theatre’s artistic program is considered to be one of the most ambitious among Tampere’s amateur theatres, and the annual auditions always gather a greater number of eager theatre enthusiasts than the theatre can take in.
In addition to acting, the theatre provides great opportunities to develop as a director, writer, producer or scenographer.
Tampereen Ylioppilasteatteri also works closely with local entrepreneurs and communities and is always open to hear about new opportunities to collaborate.
A huge part of FiiF is the close community that we build.
That is thanks to DreamHostel, who has been hosting our participants the whole time!
The family owned DreamHostel & Hotel offers effortless, quality accommodation in the center of Tampere, a stone’s throw away from Tampere Hall Congress and Concert Centre.
Selected as the best hostel in Finland six years in a row, the hostel provides travelers with large and small dormitories, which may also be booked as private rooms.
The elegant, internationally acclaimed hotel rooms charm with their fresh design and modern concept. The innovative use of space brings out the best elements of hostel and hotel without compromising on privacy and comfort.
As a cherry on top you’ll be treated to the best customer service in town.
O'Connell's Irish Bar
O’Connell’s Irish Bar has been the official Bar and Restaurant of FiiF since we started.
OC’s hosts the FiiF Off Stage, where we host free shows every night when the Mainstage shows are done!
O’Connell’s Irish Bar is a great place to unwind after a hard day at the office, and much more.
Since March 2007, we have been serving up some top quality bar food from our fully equipped kitchen. Now we want to give you all the chance to throw a really good party with top quality food to suit your needs and budget.
O’Connell’s has a very international clientele with people coming from over 30 countries worldwide. Countries as close as Sweden and Russia to as far as Japan, Australia, South Africa and Brazil (even people from Ireland and Finland are welcome!). O’Connell’s is the centre of the universe for ex-pats in Tampere!
There is something for everyone here, from the whiskey connoisseur to the beer buff, from the sports fan to the party people, none shall be disappointed! O’Connell’s combines everything good in the Irish bars, the craic, (Irish for good fun and conversation) the music and the atmosphere.
