Due to the current lockdown (Sat 31 July – Sun 8 Aug) the Scandinavian Film Festival will be rescheduled to 21 – 25 Aug. If you have tickets for the affected sessions, cinema staff will be in touch to arrange a ticket transfer, or if not suitable, a refund. This may take a little while but rest assured you will be contacted.
The Scandinavian Film Festival is returning to Brisbane with a specially curated program of films and events.
The Festival will open with WILDLAND (Kød & Blod). Set in Denmark’s underbelly, Jeanette Nordahl’s striking Scandi-noir follows an impressionable teenage girl who is placed in the care of her estranged aunt, (an incredible Sidse Babett Knudsen), the head of a family crime syndicate.
From Finland comes the GAMES PEOPLE PLAY (Seurapeli). A group of old friends gather at an idyllic Finnish seaside villa to celebrate a surprise birthday, where old feelings and power struggles rise to the surface, starring Laura Birn and Christian Hillborg.
“We emerge from hibernation with a stunning selection of the best Nordic cinema, including award-winning films direct from the 2021 Göteborg Film Festival featuring the brightest stars from the region,” Festival Director Elysia Zeccola said.
The 2021 Scandinavian Film Festival will take place at Palace James St, Palace Barracks
