NORDIC FILM FESTIVAL invites all lovers of Nordic cinema to its third edition this weekend. The festival will start on Thursday, September 22, at 18:30, and the screenings will continue until Sunday, September 25, offering moviegoers a varied program that includes comedy, drama, thriller, historical film, but also animations for children. The festival takes place in Bucharest, at Cinema Elvire Popesco in Bd. Dacia, No. 77.

The programme includes 14 multi-award winning feature films, subtitled in Romanian, through which #NordicFF brings to the fore atypical and unique cinematic perspectives, which celebrate the diversity of artistic forms and visions approached by filmmakers from all five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland , Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

“We want the Nordic Film Festival to represent a break from everyday life, an oasis of culture and humanism in a troubled time in Europe. We chose to organize the Nordic Film Festival again because European cultural ties must not end, and a film festival in the red would be a real plunge into the abyss in a cultural industry that shows little signs of recovery anyway,” says Vlad Rotaru, the Artistic Director of the festival.

The festival is organized with the support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Denmark in Romania, the Embassy of the Republic of Finland in Romania, the Consulate of the Republic of Iceland in Romania, the Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway in Romania and the Embassy of Sweden in Bucharest.
