The Finnish Institute in France (Institut Finlandais) is a versatile cultural actor, exhibiting and promoting Finnish culture, arts and the creative industries in France. We produce our own cultural programme and participate in a large number of outside events run by local cultural professionals.
Our premises were repurposed from an old cinema by the eminent Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa. In the autumn of 2013, the Institute launched itself as an accessible showcase for Finnish know-how, incorporating the Galerie Boutique retail space and the cultural meeting place Café Coutume Instituutti.
The Institute was founded in 1991 and is maintained by the Foundation of the Finnish Institute in France.
