21st IFF Prague - Febiofest has prepared a special Scandinavian section. Come to see new Danish. Icelandic, Norwegian, Finnish or Baltic films!

The audiences of Febiofest had the opportunity to see retrospectives focusing on the cinema of Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Estonia and Finland in the last six years, including tributes to personalities such as Roy Andersson, Thomas Vinterberg, Fridrik Thor Fridriksson, Jan Troell, Peter Naess or Ruben Östlund, who visited the festival. “Czech viewers truly appreciate the Scandinavian sense of humor, and we think that Prague is a good place to introduce inventive films of the North with their continual high quality every year. It is not only Scandinavia, i.e. Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Iceland, but also Finland and the three Baltic countries: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania,” say Stefan Uhrik and Hana Ciealova, program directors of Febiofest.

The highlights of the Lights of the North section at Febiofest 2014 are two films included in the program as special screenings: the Finnish-Czech coproduction, August Fools, and the Norwegian-Czech coproduction, Detective Down. A discussion panel about the cooperation of Czech producers will accompany the pre-premiere screening of these films. Apart from representatives of the Czech and foreign side – Finnish director Taru Mäkelä, Norwegian director Bård Breien (The Art of Negative Thinking) and Czech producers from the Fog'n'Desire Company and Evolution Films, Febiofest is also inviting representatives of the Finnish Film Foundation and the Norwegian Film Institute.
