Finnish broadcaster YLE invites fans to join Eurovision documentary

Posted

Finnish broadcaster YLE will create a one of a kind documentary called '12 Points' about the Eurovision Song Contest later this year. The show will be filmed exclusively by fans in and around Tel Aviv, but also back at home. The broadcaster that hosted the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest is calling out to international fans for their homemade videos to use in the documentary.

The documentary 12 Points will show the Eurovision Song Contest fandom. Much of the documentary will be made up of footage shot by fans, with broadcaster YLE capturing opinions about the competition and the reasons for its global success.

The documentary hopes to demonstrates that fans of the Eurovision Song Contest come in all shapes and sizes and that the contest unites people across borders through a love of music. 12 Points aims to explore fan culture through documentary footage sent in by fans to explain their everyday life and what the Eurovision Song Contest means to them. There is also an emphasis on the pre-party events that take place in the run-up to the live shows and what plans people are making to watch this year's show.
