In 2013 the golden age for Nordic films and TV dramas showed no sign of slowing and several landmark titles backed by the Fund such as The Act of Killing, The Hunt, The 100 Year-old Man Who Climbed the Window and Disappeared had resounding successes on a domestic, regional and international level.
Those titles were among 60 films, TV fiction series and artistic documentaries that were supported by Nordisk Film & TV Fond in 2013, a year when the Fund implemented its new policy: to act as top-up financing for high-quality Nordic audio-visual works with big potential primarily in the Nordic region, secondly internationally. Citing the two million Nordic admissions for The 100 Year-Old Man in its first two opening weeks, the Fund’s CEO Petri Kemppinen said: “We are extremely happy to have contributed to this versatile production. This was made possible for us by the fact that we are a pan-Nordic Fund with 18 industry partners from five countries”.
Nordisk Film & TV Fond’s annual report 2013 summarises the Fund’s key priorities that include production funding to Nordic projects of high quality, support to children and youth projects, support to distribution (on linear and non-linear platforms), film cultural initiatives promoting Nordic cooperation and Nordic works and talents to the rest of the world.
Besides comprehensive figures on the Fund’s past year activities, Nordisk Film &TV Fond’s annual report also provides some data and information on the Nordic film and TV industry as a whole.
