Guidelines for Intimate Scenes
In October 2020 Finland became the first Nordic country to establish intimacy guidelines for work in the film & TV industries
The guidelines have been published by the Finnish Film Foundation and aim to standardise the process of working with intimate scenes. The foundation recommends the use of a qualified intimacy coordinator in intimate scenes including nudity, simulated sex and sexual violence.
The guidelines have been translated into English, Finnish and Swedish. Please click below to open the printable guidelines in your preferred language.
