The Nordic Film Festival 2017 in Bangkok, officially ended Sunday 1 October. Since the opening reception on Wednesday 27 September, eight movies from the four Nordic countries was screened throughout the weekend at Quartier CineArt. The eight movies were carefully selected to represent different aspects of Scandinavian identity, depicting nature, art, culture and the way of life in the Nordic countries.

The main objective of the festival was to spread awareness and spark interests in Nordic films. We were therefore very pleased to experience a fully booked cinema at nearly every screening. At the Norwegian films we had in total 122 guests for Operation Arctic, and 127 guests for Victoria. The great number of visitors confirms that there is a considerable audience for Nordic Films in Bangkok. This leaves us very positive about organizing more film festivals in the future.

We would again like to direct a special thank you to our Norwegian sponsors for making the event possible.
