The region of Scandinavia, which covers Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland and Denmark, has produced some of the most iconic films ever made, from the masterpieces of Ingmar Bergman to the contemporary and transnational diversity of Nordic cinema.
Showcasing 17 films from the region, and created to offer a dedicated focus to an area of screen culture, this is a rare opportunity to see films, covering drama, crime, and comedy.
[ADVERT]The festival will open with Swedish blockbuster The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, a colourful comedy of unexpected surprises based on the hugely successful international bestselling novel by Jonas Jonasson, which was published in more than 35 countries.
Another film, The Keeper of Lost Causes, is particularly worth watching, as it will keep you on the edge of your seat. This slick Danish suspense is scripted by Nikolaj Arcel (the original The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and A Royal Affair) and based on the international best-selling crime thriller of the same name. Police inspector Carl Morck is put in charge of a department of cold cases. Along with his assistant, Assad, they dig into a case about the disappearance of a female politician which was ruled as a suicide.
