The director of Entrepreneur  is scheduled to attend the Chicago International Film Festival for both screenings of the documentary. Virpi Suutari is from Finland and has founded her career in the documentary industry. We are very excited to welcome her and even more excited to screen her great film!


Troubled father Jani journeys across the countryside, running a small street fair and selling meat from a food truck. Helsinki business partners Maija and Reetta are about to launch a new oat-based meat substitute that could change the world. With a spunky soundtrack and mesmerizing cinematography, Entrepreneur paints a vivid portrait of three entrepreneurs—one stuck in the past, the other two striving for the future.

“An enchanting and frequently funny portrait of two very different food start-ups.” – Sydney Film Festival
