Festival in Review

This year’s edition of Nordisk Panorama Film Festival became a major attraction for the local audience as well as for the Nordic documentary and short film community visiting Malmö for the festival. With sold out screenings, crowded seminars and industry events and activities all over town, it was clear to everyone what an importance the festival has as a meeting point for film lovers from near and far. 

During the six days of the festival we screened over 100 documentaries and short films in more than 20 languages. The films were screened in more than 30 locations around town. 64 films were part of the competition programmes, competing for prizes in our five competition categories. A majority of the filmmakers were attending the festival to meet their audiences, in some cases for the very first time, and to share their experiences. The Forum and Market events were also bustling with activity with countless projects in different stages being presented and hundreds of meetings taking place.

If you think we’re exhausted after all this you’re absolutely right, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t already making new plans! The application for next year’s Doc Forward is open and the dates for next year’s festival are set to 21-26 September!

We would like to thank all of you who participated in this year’s festival! We really hope to see you in Malmö again next year!
