Nordic Film Lab

The Future Filmmakers of the North

41:a festivalen
26 Jan -
5 Feb, 2018

Nordic Film Lab is an exclusive networking forum for upcoming northern filmmakers, focusing on developing their creative and artistic processes in filmmaking.

One of the most vital functions of a film festival is to act as a meeting place. The ambience that arises when people in large numbers gather around a common interest, has an attraction in itself.

For a long time, Göteborg Film Festival has been a meeting place for the audience, but also for those who make films. As the films are being screened, formal business meetings and spontaneous get-togethers take place, providing inspiration and nourishment for future projects. Since 2008, the festival has worked on enhancing this particular function by creating a special forum for talented filmmakers who are at the starting point of their careers. Nordic Film Lab is a one year programme that has two functions: partly to be a place where you meet potential future work partners, and partly to be a place for in-depth discussions about the art of filmmaking and creativity. A discussion that many people look for in contrast to all the talk about economy and practicalities.

Every year Nordic Film Lab ends at the same place as it began, at Göteborg Film Festival. The participants are invited back to the cross-collaboration between Nordic Film Lab and Nordic Film Market – Nordic Film Lab Discovery.

Thanks to the collaborations with our partners, Norwegian Film Institute, Danish Film Institute, Finnish Film Foundation, Swedish Film Institute and Film i Väst.
