About Cinema Scandinavia

Cinema Scandinavia is an independent website and magazine dedicated to discussing Nordic film and television in English. Focusing on the art and style, as well as current trends in Nordic film and television, Cinema Scandinavia publishes high-quality news stories, essays, interviews and reviews aimed at giving Nordic film and television a voice abroad.

Up until very recently, Nordic cinema was focused entirely on the local market and was seldom exported. Since the growth of Nordic Noir and high-quality films, every year more and more films and television series are being discovered abroad.

Independent from film funds, film institutes, production companies, and the region’s cultures, Cinema Scandinavia provides a ‘hub’ for fans around the globe looking to discover this new wave of Nordic content.

Our magazine is printed quarterly and is centralised on a theme that is trending in contemporary cinema. Our magazine is edited and printed to the highest quality and contains interviews, reviews and essays that can be used by film fans, students, or industry professionals.
