For its 20th anniversary, the networking and pitching event Nordic Talents will go down in history as the first event to be held not in the cosy premises of the National Film School of Denmark, but in the digital space, due to the pandemic.

However, the team of Nordisk Film & TV Fond led by CEO Liselott Forsman, Project Manager Ann-Sophie W. Birkenes, will be welcoming you all online for a fun and inspiring two days virtual experience.

Thanks to the support from online-event specialist Emma Louise Kottwitz Mørup, who worked on CPH:DOX, we will offer you excellent virtual solutions - although none as memorable as face to face encounters.

Here are the key details:

The online Nordic Talents space will run 21-22 October between 10.00-16.00 (CEST).


  • Pitch competition 
    Wednesday 10.15-11.30 and 12.15-13.30
    Thursday 10.00-11.20
    On-line participants can watch 15 pitches by Nordic film graduates, competing for the NOK 250,000 Nordic Talents Best Pitch Prize and NOK 50,000 Special Mention Prize.

    The pitching sessions, also including the usual Q&A between the pitchers and the NT-jury, will be moderated by Karolina Lidin, the Fund’s Senior Advisor Documentary.
  • A Vimeo showcase with graduation films from student pitchers
    This will replace the live screenings at the National Film School of Denmark and will be available for registered participants from October 20 at 08.00 until October 22 at 16.00. 
  • Producers’ Pitch
    Wednesday 13.45-14.45
