Göteborg Film Festival is the largest film festival in the Nordics. For 10 days at the end of January the festival will show around 250 films from more than 80 countries in about 700 screenings. A hand-picked selection will also be premiered in our online edition, so that the anticipation and nervousness that characterizes a festival premiere can be experienced in living rooms all over Sweden. The digital edition of the festival can only be streamed in Sweden.

The 47th edition of the Göteborg Film Festival took place on January 26 – February 4, 2024.

Bringing the whole world to Göteborg has always been the festival’s motto, but the goal is also to be a springboard for new Nordic film out into the world. Every year the Nordic competition, Dragon Award Best Nordic Film, scrutinizes an upper-crust of competitors and the winner’s prize is 400,000 Swedish crowns.

Göteborg Film Festival began in 1979 and attracts around 270,000 visitors each year, in cinemas and online. Around 250 films from 80 countries are shown in about 700 screenings. Yet the festival is not just about film, but also offers various talks and workshops as well as live music performances, art exhibits and many other activities.

The festival’s industry section, with Nordic Film Market at the vanguard, is the foremost marketplace for Nordic film and TV drama as well as an important meeting place industry visitors from all over the world.
