Welcome to Nordisk Panorama Film Festival 2017

Between 21-26 september Malmö was buzzing from the spirit of the most incredible film festival for Nordic documentaries and short fiction films. We are proud to have been able to present an equally diverse film festival programme, with a multitude of the finest works created by Nordic filmmakers.

These works are a commentary on the world we live in. Some open our eyes to horrendous conditions, conflicts or inequality that calls for action to create change. Some tell stories to create joy or reflection, or to resonate with us on a more personal level. We need them all.

Nordisk Panorama is invested in creating a professional and collaborative environment where all kinds of people feel welcome to join in and have fun while embracing the new, the unexpected and the necessary.

The six-day programme contained over 100 films mixed with numerous seminars, talks, exhibitions, pitches, meetings and parties taking place all over Malmö and the festival venues were filled with screenings and narratives from all over the world. Directors and filmmakers were present in Malmö during the festival to participate in over 50 Q&A-sessions in and after the screening of their films and audience mixed with the over 1000 registered delegates from the documentary and short film business. The 2017 festival, with its finnish focus, stepped up the sauna game and really made this years festival steaming!

Use this website and the Nordisk Panorama app, to dive into this year´s programme. You will find trailers and extended texts to guide you through the festival days and that you remembered to feel, play, think and engage.

A warm welcome to all of you!
