First launched in 1956, the Nordic Film Days Lübeck is one of Europe’s oldest film festivals, devoted entirely to European cinema. It shows films from Northern Europe, which have been historically and culturally closely connected for centuries: The focus is put on Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden and co-productions with other European countries. Germany is represented in the “Filmforum” section with films from the northernmost region of Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein. Films from neighbouring European countries like Poland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, Ireland or the UK will be presented in collaboration with partnering festivals such as FilmFestival Cottbus, which specializes in films from Eastern Europe or Filmfest Emden-Norderney with its focus on film from north-western Europe. The Nordic Film Days Lübeck aims to present and promote new feature films, documentaries, animation and short films, with special attention also given to children’s and youth films. Most of the films will be shown as German or international premieres. The festival intends to give an overview of the year’s Scandinavian and Baltic film production in the different genres and to make the works better known to the press and viewers on the continent as well as to film and TV buyers in order to promote distribution. Due to the enthusiastic audience, Lübeck is an ideal window to test quality Scandinavian and Baltic films for the European market. Key representatives of the film industry will be invited to meet the audience and to come together for seminars, meetings and other industry events. School screenings and special media educational activities will be organized for children and young people to enable their participation in the festival. The combination of audience festival and professional meeting place with a great variety of events, yet in a harmonious environment constitutes the particular appeal of the Nordic Film Days Lübeck.
