Films that dare to make that crazy jump

Tuffi Films Ltd. was founded in 2010 by producer Elli Toivoniemi, writer-directors Selma Vilhunen, Jenni Toivoniemi and screenwriter Kirsikka Saari. Tuffi Films produces both fiction and documentary films of various lengths. We produce films that must be done. Films that challenge what is considered being worth telling. We believe that films which are true to themselves will find their audience, and stand the test of time.

Why Tuffi?
1. Tuffi was a female circus elephant that became famous in Germany in 1950 
when she bolted in a moving suspended monorail wagon in Wuppertal. She
 trumpeted wildly, ran through the wagon, broke through a window and fell into a 
river. Tuffi survived the 5-meter fall and died as late as 1989. (Wikipedia)
2. Tuffi is the Finnish word for tuff, a type of rock consisting of consolidated
volcanic ash. (Wikipedia)
3. Small sized but giant in courage and tenacity. Feminine version.
”Toulouse Lautrec was totally tuffi in the art world and in his personal life.” (Urban
Dictionary)
