Since 2002, the Nordic Council Film Prize has been awarded to a full-length feature film that has roots in Nordic culture and displays high standards of artistic quality. Here are the nominees for the 2020 Nordic Council Film Prize
The winner will be announced on 27 October (updated 15 October)
The winner of the 2020 Nordic Council Film Prize will be announced on 27 October during a special television broadcast that can be watched throughout the Nordic Region. COVID-19 has meant that the awards ceremony can no longer take place in Iceland. The winners of the five Nordic Council prizes will instead be revealed during a digital ceremony.
The winner will receive the Nordlys statuette and the prize money of DKK 350,000 is shared equally between the winning scriptwriter, director and producer, which underlines that film as an art form is the result of close co-operation between these three main functions.
