Minna Långström is a media artist and filmmaker from Helsinki, Finland.

Her artistic work consists of films -short fiction and documentary-, as well as cinematic installations, combinging moving images with spatial elements. Her work processes tend to be extensive, well researched and interdisciplinary. Her work focuses on social perspectives on technologically mediated narratives and visual technologies, as well as certain political histories and their cinematic influences on the present. The intuitive experience and role of the viewer is a central aspect of her installations.
