Five films from the Nordic countries have been nominated for the Nordic Council Film Prize 2018. The nominees were presented at the New Nordic Films event during the Norwegian Film Festival in Haugesund, Norway, on 21 August.

The winner will be announced on 30 October 

The winner of the Nordic Council Film Prize 2018 will be announced on 30 October at the Norwegian Opera House in Oslo in conjunction with the Nordic Council Session. The prize of DKK 350,000 will be shared equally between the winning film’s director, scriptwriter, and producer. This emphasises that film as an art form is the result of close co-operation between these three pivotal people.

About the Nordic Council Film Prize

The Nordic Council Film Prize is awarded to a full-length feature film that has roots in Nordic culture and displays high standards of artistic quality and originality. Nordisk Film & TV Fond is responsible for the administration of the prize.

About the Nordic Council prizes
