That Nordic cinema has a lot more to offer than crime thrillers was thoroughly proved by this year’s Nordic Film festival.
After two weeks of films and special events, the festival concluded with the premier UK screening of award-winning
Danish director Kaspar Munk’s moving new film, You and Me Forever.
From 26 November until 4 December, Nordic Film Festival, the second of its kind,
treated film and Scandi enthusiasts to a thrilling mix of new feature films, documentaries, special guests and musical shows.
The event, which saw 15 films screened across four venues in London,
was arranged by Day For Night and benefitted not just from great guest numbers but also from generous voluntary involvement.
At the closing gala, which took place in the beautiful Ciné Lumiére in London’s South Kensington,
founder and CEO Sonali Joshi stressed her gratitude to those involved.
After the film, the night’s special guests, film director Kaspar Munk and the three leading stars of his coming of age film,
You and me Forever, Julie Andersen, Frederikke Dahl Hansen and Emilie Kruse, sat down for a Q&A session.
Many guests took full advantage of the opportunity to compliment the leading actresses and enquire about the director’s special methods,
which involve a great deal of improvisation.
Among other special guests to have taken part in this year’s festival were Swedish director
Marcus Fjellström and Swedish quartet The Pearls Before Swine Experience,
who performed the soundtrack from Fjellström’s short noir animation series at the festival’s opening gala.
