Nordisk Panorama Festival

Nordisk Panorama Festival screens the best Nordic shorts and docs in three competition programmes and in Nordic side programmes. The festival also features seminars, masterclasses and social events. Nordisk Panorama is a qualifying festival for the ACADEMY AWARDS® short film category.

Nordisk Panorama Market

Nordisk Panorama Market is the only place that offers a comprehensive overview of Nordic short and documentary film production, from films completed in the past year to titles in the pipeline. The market films are presented to international buyers, distributors and programmers during the event as well as at Nordisk Panorama Market Online all year round. Submitting your film to the market also gives you and your film unique access to the international professionals in place through pre-booked one-to-one meetings. A paid film in the market will give a key person from the film a discount on the Nordisk Panorama accreditation.
