Nordische Filmtage Lübeck announces full programme for 64th edition

    The 64th Nordische Filmtage Lübeck has announced that 173 films will be shown in 212 screenings at Lübeck venues for its 2022 festival. Of those films, more than 70% of that line-up will be available for streaming by audiences all over Germany. A total of twelve jury and audience prizes will be awarded, including the new prize for best Nordic and Baltic short film and the unendowed honorary prize, which this year will go to Icelandic director Friðrik Þór Friðriksson.

    The film programme is divided into nine sections, comprising films, episodic television, and immersive works from northern and northeast Europe. As part of the programme, the Documentary section will show 18 films, four of which are being shown out of competition. Additional sections include the feature film competition, Nordic Shorts, Filmform, Children’s and Youth Film, The Series section, curated this year for the first time by renowned film journalist and festival maven Wendy Mitchell, and the newest section, Immersion 360°.

    Titled «cross and queer», the 14 northern lights in this year’s Retrospective, made between 1921 and 1981, weave tales of cross-dressing and gender identity. In addition to the public screenings, the Nordische Filmtage mounts a host of side-bar events for industry professionals. The Lübeck Meetings series provides an industry forum for German and international attendees.

    The 64th Nordische Filmtage Lübeck will open on November 2 with the German premiere of Danish documentary Music for Black Pigeons by Jørgen Leth and Andreas Koefoed. The documentary poses existential questions to influential jazz musicians such as Bill Frisell, Lee Konitz, Midori Takada, and many others. Further documenray film highliughts include A House Made of Splinters (dir. Simon Lereng Wilmont), Nelly & Nadine (dir. Magnus Gertten), The Territory, (dir. Alex Pritz), and more.
