Host a Happy Hour at Nordisk Panorama

Our ever popular Happy Hours will once again be a feature at this year’s Nordisk Panorama Film Festival. These early evening events are the place to meet new Nordic friends and colleagues, have a little something to sip on and hear the latest from the evening’s host. At festival venues Grand and Scandic, our Happy Hours are the perfect setting to mingle and create relationships which can last far beyond the festival’s end.

Has your organisation got something to shout about? Then become an official Happy Hour host and take the chance to share it with our Nordic film community.

Nordisk Panorama Launches New Award

This month we announced the launch of Nordisk Panorama’s first annual Nordic Documentary Producer Award at the 2023 edition of the film festival. The award is a pan-Nordic initiative sponsored by six of the foremost member associations within the Nordic film industry and has been created to acknowledge the invaluable role of the producer within documentary filmmaking.

The Nordic Documentary Producer Award will be given to a producer whose leadership, courage and willingness to take risks has helped ensure the development of emerging talents and progressed documentary as an art form. The award winner will be revealed at the annual Nordisk Panorama Awards Gala in Malmö, Sweden and receive a prize sum of 10,000 euro.
