2023 Full Programme Release: Turning Torso séance and performance, horror shorts, concerts and more!

We just can’t hold it in any longer! Today we finally release the full 2023 programme, including all of the special events that we have been waiting to fill you in on. Scroll for a quick overview of this year’s not-to-be-missed events, and visit our website or browse through our festival catalogue to see our programme in its entirety.

The 34th edition will take place in Malmö from 21–26 September. All tickets can be purchased on the Nordisk Panorama website.


Turning Torso Séance & Performance

It’s our 10th consecutive year in Malmö. An event which calls for a celebration, and what a celebration we have planned! Join us at the top of the tallest building in Scandinavia: the magnificent Turning Torso, for an unforgettable and once-in-a-lifetime audio-visual experience. On the 54th floor, 190m above ground, you’ll have a bird’s eye view of the Öresund as the sun sets. But perhaps even more unique is the glimpse into the Netherworld which artists Johan Tingne and Johan Frick will be offering as they attempt to conjure up the gods “Lucifox” and “Mousifer”.

Saturday 23/9 18.30, 20.00 & 21.15 Turning Torso
Purchase of ticket required for accredited guests and non-accredited guests.


Arctic Chills

Venture to the Earth’s Far North with three bone-chilling stories from our festival programme. In this short film package, three Indigenous filmmakers present mythical, complex and terrifying beings, bringing audiences into the ice-cold landscapes on the edges of survival. Do you dare?

Imajuik by Marc Fussing Rosbach.


Club CineSonic: A Concert and Party

Hakeem Martin.

This year, we bring you a festival first with Club CineSonic – a unique coupling of live performance and video art, with the local music scene front and centre. Malmö-based artist Noreena McCleave presents an exciting line-up of artists hailing from the area: Noorena herself, Delphi, Locito and Hakeem Martin.

Expect high energy performances, vulnerable R&B coupled with hip-hop soul and to stay on the dancefloor until the early hours. After the concert, the event will be followed by an afterparty with a live DJ.

Friday 22/9 22.30 Brogatan. This event is free to attend.


The Home Game & Football Match

The Home Game by Smári Gunnarsson & Logi Sigursveinsson.

If you’ve been lurking on our Instagram page over the summer, you might have seen us tease a football match.

Well, in celebration of the international premiere of The Home Game on 23 September, the very first Nordisk Panorama football team will take to the field and give it their all against the Malmö Pub League team Lokomotiv Wärldshuset.

We’re putting together a stellar team of staff, industry guests and, wait for it, some of the stars and crew responsible for getting The Home Game to our cinema screen. Are you a football and film fan? We have a few spots waiting to be filled, and anyone is welcome to join. Or be a true Nordisk Panorama fan and cheer us on from the sidelines.

The Home Game screening: Saturday 23/9 13.00 Cinema Panora


I Got Words and Speech Karaoke at Babel

I Got Words by Runar Gudnason.

Keep that post-film buzz going. Head to Babel for the 19.00 screening of I Got Words, followed by some riveting Speech Karaoke.

Hear us out: If Runar Gudnason’s rap documentary doesn’t inspire you to grab the mic yourself and drop some bars – we doubt anything ever will. Whether it’s a powerful political manifesto or a tear-jerking excerpt from your favourite film that you’ve got brewing inside you, let it all out on stage.

In collaboration with Doc Lounge Malmö.

Monday 25/9 19.00 Film, 20.45 Speech Karaoke
