Holiday Wishes on the Shortest Day of the Year

Dear Friends,

As we draw close to the holidays, family and relationships are explored, serving up lots of great moments of entertainment, awkward conversations, misunderstandings, love and tenderness. A short film compilation from our great Nordic archive shines a light on just this and isn’t to be missed. So enjoy some fantastic short films on this shortest day of the year!
And if you live in Malmö or nearby, don’t miss the programme screening at The Cowgirl Gallery tonight, on 21 December at 19.00. More info
