The 8th edition of the Nordic Film Fest (NFF) organised by the embassies of Nordic countries in Italy and the Scandinavian Circle in Rome began in Rome on Thursday with a view to promote the Nordic film industry and culture.

The event at the Casa del Cinema in Rome is created and developed by the Nordic embassies in collaboration with the Film Institutes of the respective countries with support and sponsorship of the Municipality of Rome.

The festival presents new or never-yet-presented-in-Italy films, documentaries and short films, all screened in their original language and with Italian subtitles.

Entry is free and the programmes of the event also include presentations and meetings with high profile guests (directors, actors, etc.).

The theme of this year’s exhibition is "Borders", not only in a geographical sense but also among "worlds", different ways of being and thinking.

On the whole, this year’s Nordic Film Festival presents 13 films, two documentary, and four short films.

Two films from Denmark, three films and one documentary from Finland, one film from Iceland, three films and one short film from Norway and Sweden each and four short films and one film from the Scandinavian Circle will be screened during the festival.

The Finnish films are: Every Other Couple (Jokatoinenpari – 2016), Unknown Soldier (Tuntematonsotilas – 2017), Void (Tyhjiö – 2018 ),  and One Last Deal (Tuntematonmestari – 2019).
