The world of Nordisk Panorama

Nordisk Panorama is a non-profit organization representing the Nordic filmmakers perspective on the world through documentary and short fiction films.

Nordisk Panorama Film Festival is the annual flagship event that for the past 30 years has been showing a selection of the best Nordic shorts and docs in curated competitions and special programmes, awarding the very best Nordic documentaries and short films with great prizes. Competitions combined with glimpses of what the future of this film scene might bring.

During 6 days in September the Film Festival in Malmö, Sweden, offers the public audience and film industry professionals the best of the newest Nordic Short and Documentary films together with a range of industry events.

We create a wide range of audiovisual experiences in cinemas, streets, art halls, libraries, museums, clubs and yet unheard of screening venues in Malmö and present them to a unique mix of filmmakers and public audience.

The core of Nordisk Panorama is to create an essential platform and meeting place for audience, creators, producers, financiers, distributors and decision makers who strive to provide the world with more and better Nordic films.

We put ourselves in the centre of matchmaking and initiate collaborations between professionals from the film industry with other cultural fields, opinion makers, truth tellers and businesses.

The annual Film festival is the ultimate melting pot where it all comes together. The films get to meet the public audience and some 900 film professionals meet, match and mix.

The strength of documentary films gives us the opportunity to put our present world and society in the spotlight by penetrating and going beyond the topics shown on the big screen with connected seminars, talks, panels, master classes and events.

Nordisk Panorama Film Festival 2019 takes place 19-24 September.

Nordic short and documentary films and projects cross paths with Nordisk Panorama in many stages of their life cycle. We are there to support them every step of the way. Our expertise stretches from working with projects in process with mentorships, matchmaking and co-financing of documentaries at the NP Forum, to helping finished films find their audiences at public screenings during the film festival as well as via international film festivals, distributors and buyers from all over the world at the NP Market.
