STOCKHOLM — The Finnish Film Foundation has pledged production coin totaling Euros 713,000 ($957,000) to two feature films, “Indigo” and “Punksters & Youngsters.”

“Indigo” centers on a woman in her midthirties whose life is turned upside down after an injury. Pic will be directed by Hanna Maylett, who previously made “Suburban Virgin” and doc “Good Girls.”

Shooting begins later this year and the premiere is set for autumn 2008. Producers are Lasse Saarinen and Risto Salomaa. Nordisk Film is handling international sales.

Documentary “Punksters & Youngsters” focuses on the Finnish punk music scene since the 1970s, and Finnish punk legend Pelle Miljoona in particular.

The film is to be directed by Jouko Aaltonen, whose music doc “Revolution” was nominated for the Nordic Council’s Film Prize last year.

Shooting takes place this summer and autumn and the pic is to premiere in February 2008. Sandrew Metronome Distribution Finland will distribute the film. Illume’s Pertti Veijalainen produces.
