NIGHTWISH - Fan Documentary Released

The fans of symphonic metal masters Nightwish have had a busy year. Since October 2015, over 60 fans from 50 countries have been filming a crowdsourced Nightwish fan documentary. During the past year, fans have answered questions about their fandom and the band and have performed weekly tasks presented to them in front of a mobile phone camera. The project is now completed.
The webproject "To Nightwish with Love" is active on the Yle (Finnish Broadcasting Company) website. Hundreds of hours of material was produced and sent to Yle by the fans. Yle's production team has used the material to create a number of web documentaries, including a full-feature documentary film, "To Nightwish with Love". The documentary filmed by fans discusses the band, and the fans’ passion and fandom in the words of the fans themselves, in tens of different languages.
"In the end, fans from over fifty countries participated," say the directors of the documentary, Kaisa Alenius and Harto Hänninen. “It has been an eye opening experience to see that people with completely different background can suddenly share similar ideas about life, identity and art. This is the power of fandom.”
In addition to the documentary, an online series with 18 episodes is published on the "To Nightwish with Love" - website. It has been edited from the material produced by the fans where the fans learn Finnish, discuss the universe of music as well as the different vocalists the band has seen. Nightwish's music has helped the fans through difficult times, but it has also connected people. One of the most important themes of the online series is love.
"This is a documentary that I'd like to see right away", said Tuomas Holopainen of Nightwish upon hearing about the crowdsourcing project underway at Yle, Finland's national public service broadcasting company. The documentary "To Nightwish with Love" was released online on Saturday, 20th August, and it is now available HERE.
This Sunday, on 28th August there will be a whole night dedicated to the Finnish symphonic metal stars, on Yle Teema channel in Finland. Including an interview of Tuomas Holopainen, the documentary and a premiere of a concert, Yle Live: Nightwish in Mexico City (2015). The concert will be available on the "To Nightwish with Love" - website on Sunday 10 PM (UTC+3).
The band also announced a new release date for the DVD titled Vehicle Of Spirit. The two-concert-live-release will see the light of day on 25th November via Nuclear Blast Records. Link
