First Nordic-Baltic youth film festival begins tomorrow

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The first Nordic-Baltic youth film festival will start here from tomorrow showcasing a diverse mix of some of the most celebrated and Oscar nominated movies from the region.

Organised by the Nordic-Baltic embassies -- Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, and -- the festival will take place from November 13 at Habitat Centre here.

"It is a great pleasure to carry on these strong bonds and share the culture of our region with the Indian people through cinema. This film festival offers a diverse mix of some of the most celebrated films from the Nordic-Baltic region," the organisers said.

The festival will open with Land of Mine from Denmark, an Oscar-nominated film about young German prisoners of World War II who are forced to clear a beach from land mines by a Danish Sergeant.

Over the course of six days, movie-goers will have an opportunity to watch films like Face to Face, Zero Point, The Lesson, and The Wave among others.

The festival will give the Indian audience an opportunity to connect with these countries and strengthen the cultural bond.

Ranging from action to family and documentaries, the festival will offer a platform to enhance people-to-people relations and share the love for cinema.

Tied together by geography, history, trade, and culture, the Nordic-Baltic countries seek to strengthen their bond through the festival.

The event will come to a close on November 18 with the screening of Hobbyhorse Revolution from Finland, which is a quirky documentary about teenagers who bond through riding and grooming toy horses.
