The 63rd Nordische Filmtage Lübeck takes from 3 – 7 November 2021 in Lübeck, Germany.
Nordische Filmtage Lübeck has one of the longest traditions of any film festival worldwide. It is the only festival in Germany, and the only one on the European continent, which is entirely devoted to the presentation of films from the North and Northeast of Europe. Feature films, documentaries, and short films from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, and Sweden are presented at this six-day event every year at the beginning of November.
Modern Times Review spoke with Nordische Filmtage Lübeck Artistic Director Thomas Hailer on the challenges, trends, and current Nordische Filmtage Lübeck experience.
How do you define the role of film festival Artistic Director? What is your personal approach toward your responsibilities as one?
I am responsible for the artistic content of the festival. This primarily means selecting the films for the feature film and documentary competitions. Of course, I am in constant exchange with the programmers of the other sections. In this way, a consistent overall programme with numerous formal and thematic cross-references emerges in the course of the process.
Of particular importance for all of us is the targeted approach to young audiences, to whom a separate section is dedicated here in Lübeck and who are given additional incentives to visit the cinema between the festival editions with numerous participation . . .
