NORD – New Nordic Voices

NORD - New Nordic Voices is an ambitious collaborative project between the film schools in Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, supported by the A.P. Møller Foundation. The project is initiated by the Danish Film School and aims to promote new, strong Nordic cinematic storytellers. It consists of meetings between students from the three schools' screenwriting, producing, and directing programs. Each meeting includes teaching and development workshops, as well as an ongoing seminar under the heading 'Nordic Think Tank,' where a wide range of invited speakers from various fields such as literature, art, film, research, and politics contribute to sharpening the discussion and understanding of Nordic culture and contemporary issues.
