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 winning film will be announced on 27 October

The winner of the 2020 Nordic Council Film Prize will be announced on 27 October at an awards ceremony in Reykjavik in conjunction with the Session of the Nordic Council. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the exact format of the awards ceremony has yet to be determined. Information will be made available at www.norden.org.

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.
