Amongst the additional highlights include special guests and animation gurus Michelle & Uri Kranot, who will be delivering a masterclass and screening a retrospective of shorts. The questions of what does it take to make a documentary series and how does the process differ from making a feature and What do you do when, having already delivered episodes one and two, you realise when you edit episode five that you need to make changes to the first two episodes, are some that will be addressed in the case study of the Norwegian-Swedish co-produced documentary series Welcome to Norway. Also on the programme is a special screening of Virpi Suutari’s Aalto, whose score by Sanna Salmenkallio won the Harpa Nordic Film Composer Award. Virpi and Sanna talk about the collaboration between them during the creative process of scoring the film. Short form documentary also takes focus with director David Borenstein and producer and NY Op-Docs commissioner Jesper Jack sharing their experience of working with short-form documentaries in «The Short Documentary Art Form». «How to Survive as a Short Film Producer» then features a panel of Frida Mårtensson, Bente Maalen, Jani Pösö discussing their thoughts, experiences, and struggles to survive as short film producers. «Truth v/Reality – a Question of Context and Expectations?» then looks at the recent controversy of several creative docs from the Nordic region that have received different levels of accusations regarding the narrative tools used to tell their story. Rock in Reykjavik (dir. Friðrik Þór Friðriksson) also celebrates its 40th anniversary at Nordisk Panorama, while the annual walk through the city Cinema Walk returns.
Finally, in solidarity with Ukraine, Nordisk Panorama is welcoming a delegation of eight director/producer teams to attend the festival and take part in a special tailor-made industry programme.
