Nordisk Panorama has released their full festival programme for this year’s 32nd edition. With it, Nordisk Panorama will offer fully-packed film and industry programme from 16 to 21 September.
Some of the festival’s highlights for 2021 include the «Sustainability Strategies and Climate Actions» section, which features the likes of School of Hope, Eatnameamet – Our Silent Struggle and Orgiastic Hyper-Plastic. The section will also feature a special master class from Phie Ambo, who recently gained momentum through the release of her film 70/30 that takes a closer look at the world’s most ambitious climate act. This masterclass will take place on 19 September.
On 21 September, The Nordic Eco Media Alliance (NEMA) will discuss «Sustainability Strategies Across the Nordics», presenting its action plan to achieve a sustainable Nordic film and television industry, and how filmmakers can adopt their methods.
For its core industry section, representatives from HBO, Al Jazeera Documentary Channel and Tribeca Film Festival among many others will feature across a hybrid edition. 48 projects are presented at the forum taking us from Kurdistan to Sri Lanka, from Texas to Uganda and all around the Nordic region.
Nordisk Panorama’s latest addition: «The Cinema Walk». During this activity, a diverse slate of Nordic short films will be screened in the most unexpected places in and around town. To give you a teaser, you can stumble over a depressed lobster trying to get cooked in Pizzeria Rex, walk by a seemingly drunk toddler at the Festival Hotel Scandic Triangeln, and let a play with light inspire you at Form/Design Center.
Finally, at the intersection between gaming and film is the seminar «Meaningful Fun Indie Games For the Heart» where award-winning games developed throughout the Nordic region will be introduced. As a kind of public service art form the games are created with an inspiring combination of taking a serious topic, based on reality, and creating a fictive universe in which the user is brought full circle into reality again as they become an active part of the story through the game.
