Nordisk Panorama is Seeking New Director
After more than 5 years with the organisation Anita Reher is stepping down as director of Nordisk Panorama. Under her reign Nordisk Panorama has grown and developed into an even stronger platform for the Nordic short film and documentary communities. She has spearheaded strong new and important initiatives, most recently with the introduction of the Nordic Documentary Producer Award.
“It has been my great privilege to have worked for the past five years on behalf of Nordic filmmakers and to have set in motion exciting initiatives for 2024.
I am moving on to new adventures, however I am truly proud of all the accomplishments we have achieved through the efforts of our strong and dedicated team.
I’m looking forward to staying in touch with Nordisk Panorama and the wonderful Nordic film community”
Chairwoman of the board Ingvil Giske says:
“It is of course very sad that Anita will be leaving the organisation, but mostly the board is immensely thankful for the amazing efforts she has put in over the years.
The festival is in a better position than ever, with a strong team and many plans already laid out for 2024. Anita has played a crucial role in securing financing for the organisation as well as strengthening the festival’s position as a meeting place for the industry and local audiences alike. We wish her the best for the future, and hope that her experiences and competence will continue to contribute to the Nordic film community.”
