Nordisk Panorama Market 2017

Welcoming international film festivals, distributors and buyers from all over the world, Nordisk Panorama Market offers a comprehensive overview of the newest independently produced Nordic short and documentary films.

Below you can see the events, projects and films of NP Market 2017.

NPM Work-in-Progress

Sun 23 Sept, 13.30-18.00 2018, Scandic Triangel – Selected Market Guests Only


Giving nearly finished films the final push

Work-in-Progress presents 6 nearly finished documentary projects, almost ready to make it onto the world stage. The projects are presented to international and Nordic decision makers in a tailor made event, created to make sure that each project benefited the most from the presentation.

The presentations and consecutive one-to-one meetings take place at Nordisk Panorama Market on Sunday 23 September 2018 in the afternoon.

The Work-in-Progress presentations follows up on former Nordisk Panorama Forum pitches and pitches at fora around the world. All projects presented are looking for a last push to be finalized, a sales agent/distributor or festival premiere.

The Work-in-Progress projects are therefore not selected through an open call, but invited to submit.
