This year’s Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival celebrates the best new Nordic cinema. Presented by Palace Cinemas, the festival offers an eclectic selection of films from Finland, Norway, Iceland, Denmark and Sweden.
This year’s programme includes a number of international festival favourites and award winners, from romances and comedies to dramas, documentaries and Nordic Noir.
The festival will open on 17th July at Cinema Paradiso, Northbridge with an Australian premiere. ‘Happy Ending’ is a cheeky, star-studded romantic Danish comedy with a twist about second chances in love later in life; the movie will be shown in Danish with English subtitles. The evening will be celebrated with a Scandinavian celebration with drinks, Nordic flavours and music, following the feature film.
The festival will also feature a biographical documentary on the author Stieg Larson. Entitled ‘The Man Who Played With Fire” the documentary paints the little known and equally compelling portrait of the man before the books, whose life was replete with the intrigue and danger that fuelled his novels. There will also be a retrospective screening of the tremendously successful “Millennium Trilogy” – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets’ Nest. The movies will be screened in Swedish with English subtitles.
The Scandinavian Film Festival starts on 17th July and runs until 7th August.
