Tom of Finland is a 2017 Finnish biographical drama film directed by Dome Karukoski and written by Aleksi Bardy.

Tom of Finland premiered on 27 January 2017, at Gothenburg Film Festival and 24 February 2017, in Finnish cinemas. It was selected as the Finnish entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards, but it was not nominated.
