Nordic Council Film Prize 2017

Little Wing winner of
Nordic Council Film Prize!

Nordic Council Film Prize 2017

The Nordic Council Film Prize was permanently established in 2005, and is to be juxtaposed with the Nordic Council Literature Prize, The Nordic Council Music Prize, and the Nordic Council Environment Prize. The prize is DKK 350,000, and is to be shared equally between the film's director, screenwriter and producer. The winner was announced during the Award Ceremony in Helsinki 1 November.

The purpose of the Filmprize is to promote the selection and circulation of Nordic films in the region with the intention of strengthening the Nordic cultural community and develop the Nordic region as a cultural domestic market. The nominated films are meant to benefit from the Film Prize, both culturally and commercially, in a Nordic and global perspective.

Nordic Talents 2017

Nordic Talents brings new talents and the established film and TV-industry together!

6-7 September our annual event was held in cooperation with, and at, The National Film School of Denmark. We welcomed 200+ participants over the two days. Nordic Talents is an important venue where graduating Nordic film students, Nordic producers and financiers get together.

The main attraction of the event is the pitching competition where pre-selected graduation students pitch their new projects in front of a professional jury. The jury hands out two awards of NOK 250,000 and NOK 50,000. The program will also include screening of graduation films, the producer's pitch and a master class, before the award ceremony closes the event.

Nordic Genre Boost 2017

Nordic Genre Boost-participants

The initative is now closed.

Nordic Genre Boost 2017

The strategic development initiative Nordic Genre Boost was created by Nordisk Film & TV Fond in 2014 to put a specific focus on the rapidly expanding field of genre films targeting younger audiences. It is now in its third and final round. Nordic Genre Boost combines a development grant of NOK 200,000 for every selected project and access to an intensive process of two workshops. 

The workshops include tutoring on script development, financing, marketing and project presentation. Thus the selected projects get a platform on which they can strengthen their visibility and potential to reach the production stage.
