First Nordic Film Festival in Beijing
Together with the Nordic Embassies and the Nordic Film Institutes, Danish Cultural Center is proud to present the first Nordic Film Festival in Beijing from the 18th to 26th of March 2017. The program is diverse and made up of significant and carefully selected films from Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
Together with the 12 feature films, the festival will present a series of talks thus providing the audience an opportunity to get acquainted with the Nordic way of thinking while at the same time be touched by great stories and the sense of wonder that is at the core of film.
Historically, Scandinavia has made a disproportionately large contribution to world cinema, and the particular Nordic way of approaching ‘the seventh art’ is widely acknowledged and celebrated amongst film lovers and professionals all around the globe. Directors like Carl Th. Dreyer, Ingmar Bergman, and Lars von Trier have all contributed in significant ways to the artistic development of the medium and today, they belong to the Parnassus of moviemakers who have pushed the boundaries of cinema thanks to their psychological depiction of the human mind.
The Nordic way of approaching the art form will be celebrated and elaborated at this exclusive event containing 12 films, 5 talks and 18 screenings.
