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 Reykjavik 27 October.
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.
We congratulate the winners Hazhir Ibrahimi (Kolbar) and Kerren Lumer-Klabbers & Emil Wahl (Woman Walking)! Read our wrap-up story HERE.
Nordic Talents brings new talents and the established film and TV-industry together!
This annual event takes place each fall and is usually held in cooperation with, and at, The National Film School of Denmark. We normally welcome 200 participants during our two-day event. Nordic Talents is an important venue where graduating Nordic film and TV students, Nordic producers and financiers get together. The 2020 event will take place online due to Covid-19 restrictions.
The main focus of the event is the pitching competition for Nordic graduation students where pre-selected projects are pitched in front of a professional jury. The jury hands out two awards of NOK 250,000 and NOK 50,000. The program also includes a producers' pitch, meetings and a keynote, before an award ceremony closes the event.
