Scandinavian culture is becoming more popular in Australia, with the rise of Nordic Noir television, Scandi crime novels and eateries such as our own New Nordic in Prospect. And part of this norse zeitgeist is the eclectic Scandinavian film industry, which, after all, gave us one of the all-time greats, Ingmar Bergman.
The Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival brings together the best on screen from Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland.
Opening on July 18th, and running till August 8th, this year’s festival will be showing across both Palace Nova cinemas: Eastend and Prospect. The gorgeous crop of works includes Darling, While We Live, Becoming Astrid, Winter Brothers and What Will People Say.
Special events include opening night with drinks and entertainment, followed by Under the Tree, and the Australian premiere of Amateurs, along with lemon & elderflower cocktails.
Be sure to check out some of the wonderful films and events on offer . And if you catch a movie in Prospect, you could have dinner at New Nordic as well and make a Scandinavian night of it!
