And we’re off! 2022 is up and running and hopes are high for an exciting, fascinating and inspiring year.


We cannot reiterate enough how thankful we are for the amazing support and help we have received from the short & doc community in the past year. As we announced at the end of last year, many of our funders have stepped up and provided additional funding for us to continue to serve you. We are very grateful to them.

We are still working tirelessly to fill the short fall in our funding but one thing is for sure; Nordisk Panorama Film Festival and industry activities will take place 22-27 September 2022in Malmö! So mark your calendars – we can’t wait to see you!


Online Seminars – Tell Us what You Need!

During Nordisk Panorama in September we brought back our Town Hall where we gathered key industry stakeholders to address current obstacles and opportunities in the documentary industry. To continue and further the dialogue between different sectors of the Nordic documentary industry we will arrange two online seminars during the spring.

We are very excited and full of ideas but most of all we are interested in hearing which topics you feel urgently need to be addressed. Please send us your thoughts and ideas here by 15 February.

The seminars are supported by  and arranged in continued collaboration with Nordisk Film & TV Fond.
