About The Nordic Council Film Prize
The purpose of The Nordic Council Film Prize is to promote Nordic film production, the Region’s film market and the long-term international position of Nordic film.
It is awarded to a full-length feature that has roots in Nordic culture and displays high standards of artistic quality and originality. Innovation is also weighted heavily. The films nominated should preferably be in one of the Nordic languages.
Cinematographer Sari Aaltonen will meet the audience for a Q&A after the screening.
