Nordisk Panorama Film Festival 2021

The 32nd edition of Nordisk Panorama Film Festival takes place 16-21 September in Malmö, Sweden. This year we welcome the audience back to the cinemas! We hope everyone will take the opportunity to discover the best of Nordic docs and short films, screening during six days in September at local cinemas and across the city. Nordisk Panorama Film Festival celebrates the best of Nordic docs and shorts with its competition programme focusing on films produced in the Nordic countries during the last year. The festival gathers local audiences, film creatives, and decision-makers from across the Nordics. 

“Our ambition this year is to give something back to the audiences after a year when so much has been canceled. We had our hopes up early for a festival focusing on in-person events and now we’re on! Film as a medium creates such beautiful opportunities for people to meet, opening up worlds and inspiring new conversations. As a visitor of the festival you will get the opportunity to experience film in a range of different city spaces. In cinemas, but also in more unexpected locations, for example as part of our Cinema Walk”, says festival producer Sigrid Bersmann.
