Nearly 40 Nordic Films to Appear at Berlinale

I have been slowly updating you on the Scandinavian films that will be appearing at Berlinale. Nordisk film has released an article providing a general overview of all the Nordic films to be appearing at the festival, and altogether nearly 40 of them will be making an appearance. Svensk Filmindustri will be screening five new titles: a promo of Ole Bornedal’s war epic 1864, Mikael Persbrandt’s vehicle Nobody Owns Me, Tarik Saleh’s Tommy and the children’s films Annabel’s Spectacularities and JerryMaya’s Detective Agency-von Broms Secret. 

Other festival selections and award-winning films making their EFM screening debuts are Blind (Versatile), A Thousand Times Goodnight (Global Screen), Dead Snow 2Red vs Dead (Elle Driver), The Hour of the Lynx (The Match Factory), Of Horses and Men (Film Sharks), XL (Cinemavault), Metalhead (Picture Tree International), The Disciple (Långfilm Production), Antboy (Attraction Distribution), The Quiet Roar (Bac Films), Something Must Break (outplay) and Hotell (MK2).
