Submit Your Film to Nordisk Panorama Market

It is time to submit your brand new short and documentary films to Nordisk Panorama Market, where buyers, distributors, sales agents and programmers screen films all day long during the festival. Nordisk Panorama Market is the only place that offers a comprehensive overview of Nordic short and documentary film production, from films completed in the past year to titles in the pipeline.

The market films are presented to international & Nordic buyers, distributors and programmers during the event at the market screening facilities, and selected films will be presented in curated closed market screenings. Furthermore, all market films will be available to buyers, distributors and programmers at our password-protected streaming service Nordisk Panorama Market Online all year round.

Submitting your film to the market gives you and your film a unique access to the international professionals present, through pre-booked one-to-one meetings at the market. If you pay to have your film in the market a key person from the film will get a discount on the Nordisk Panorama accreditation.

Deadline for submission of films completed in 2016 to the market is 1 August. Click here for regulations and online submission.
