Both Birds of a Feather by Finland’s Hanna Bergholm and Lamb by Iceland’s Valdimar Jóhannsson are directorial debuts. Each project received NOK 200,000 (around €20,000) in development support from the Fund’s Nordic Genre Boost programme. Their respective grant from Eurimages amounted to €450,000 and €380,000.
A total of 15 feature films, two documentaries and an animation project received €4,397,000 from Eurimages at the Fund’s 154th Board of Management meeting held in Bucharest.
