Documentaries tackling the most urgent topics of our time
“This year’s documentary programme tackles some of the most urgent topics of our time – climate crisis, corruption, war, violation of human rights and women’s rights.
The selection features promising newcomers as well as internationally acclaimed filmmakers, among which are Danish Simon Lereng Wilmont with A House Made of Splinters, Finnish Susanna Helke with Ruthless Times – Songs of Care and Swedish Magnus Gertten with Nelly & Nadine.
Among the newcomers are Icelandic Álfrún Örnólfsdóttir with her entertaining Band, Norwegian Emilie Beck with No Place Like Home, Swedish Maria Loohufvud and Love Martinsen with their international darling Calendar Girls and Danish Louise Leth with her heart-warming See Me As I Am.”

Short films reaffirming the power of imagination
“These films reaffirm the power of imagination to open new doors and start new conversations and are hinting at contemporary issues such as the climate crisis, sexual prejudices and youth activism.
The 2022 short film selection sees the return of director Jerry Carlsson (winner of the Best Nordic Short Film Award in 2017 and 2021) and Hlynur Pálmason, director of the multi-awarded Winter Brothers and A White White Day presents his latest short Nest.
Next to these established names, exciting new talents are emerging: the coming-of-age film Fardosa is a collaboration between first-time actors, writers and filmmakers Rukia Mahamed and Iqlaas Osman with director Anton Tammi.”
