Louder Than Bombs

An upcoming exhibition to celebrate photographer Isabelle Reed three years after her untimely death brings her eldest son, Jonah, back to the family home, compelling him to spend more time with his father, Gene, and his withdrawn younger brother, Conrad, whom he hasn’t seen in years. With the three of them under one roof, Gene tries to connect with his sons, but they struggle to reconcile their feelings for the woman whom they all remember very differently.

About Nordic Council Film Prize

Purpose
The purpose of the Nordic Council prizes is to raise interest in the Nordic cultural community and in environmental co-operation, as well as to recognise outstanding artistic and environmental initiatives. The prizes seek furthermore to raise the profile of Nordic co-operation and increase its visibility.

The prize-winning film
The winner of the prize will each year be announced during the Session of the Nordic Council. The prize is awarded to an artistically significant, Nordic-produced full-length feature film with cinema distribution. The film must have had its cinema premiere between 1 July 2015 and 30 June 2016. The DKK 350,000 prize will be shared equally among the screenwriter, director, and producer, underscoring how film as an art form is brought about by the close collaboration of these three main contributors.

Criteria for nomination
The nominated films must have deep roots in Nordic culture, be of high artistic quality, distinguish themselves by their artistic originality, and combine and elevate the many elements of film into a compelling and holistic work of art. 

National and Nordic jury
Each national jury consists of three members appointed by the Nordic Council of Ministers (Ministers of Culture). The members are selected from prominent figures whose work relates analytically and critically to film.

Each national jury has a three-year tenure, and the members of the national juries for 2016 are:

Denmark:   Per Juul Carlsen*, Jakob Wendt Jensen, Eva Novrup Redvall

Finland:    Jaana Puskala*, Harri Römpötti, Outi Heiskanen

Iceland:    Hilmar Oddsson*, Börkur Gunnarsson, Helga Þórey Jónsdóttir

Norway:   Silje Riise Næss*, Kalle Løchen, Britt Sørensen

Sweden:   Jannike Åhlund*, Jon Asp, Kristina Börjeson

The Nordic jury is made up of the heads (*) of each of the national juries.
