Besides Lipski, fifteen Nordic film graduates picked from a larger array of Nordic film schools (11+ instead of 5 in previous years) will take centre stage to pitch their projects (feature, tv-series animation or doc) to an audience of established and wannabe Nordic film professionals.
This year’s jury that will grant the Nordic Talents’ NOK 250.000 Pitch Award and NOK 50.000 Special Mention comprises Danish director Annette K. Olesen (In Your Hands, Borgen), Roberto Olla, Eurimages Executive Director, Kari Juusonen, Finnish animation director, Åsa Sjöberg, Director of Programmes at TV4 Sweden and Stine Helgeland, Executive Director at the Norwegian Film Institute, responsible for Promotions & International Relations.
As in the past two years, an additional prize – the SF Award for Best Children or Family Pitch worth SEK 30.000 will be handed to the best pitch aimed at children or a family audience.
The networking and pitching platform co-organised by Nordisk Film & TV Fond and the National Film School of Denmark is one of the most sought after events in the Nordic region, offering a jumpstart in the career of promising Nordic filmmakers, producers and scriptwriters.
Past Nordic Talents winners that have successful turned their pitch project into a first feature length include Runar Rúnarsson (Volcano), Jan Rahbek (Marco Macaco) and Karzan Kader (Bekas).
