Scandi 2017

Scandi : 25.1. - 29.1.2017

http://scandi.filmeurope.eu/en/

This year Scandi will above all present new pictures. Having chosen this fresh approach, we aim to differ from similarly focused Nordic film festivals. New movies, new creators, yet also, traditionally, a large distribution cloud. Scandi will again be taking place at the best Slovak and Czech cinemas, on VOD platforms, within the Festival 12 DVD edition, as well as on premium television channels – this year, besides the Film Europe Channel, for the first time on the Festival Cinema Channel. Every year, the turbo-charged Nordic film engine generates bold genre titles, top-notch cinema films, remarkable quality TV series, but also extraordinary festival artefacts. I cannot but repeat that the Nordic con- text can serve as the best possible example for the Slovak and Czech cinematic culture. Welcome to Scandi 3.

A variety of trends has been fruitfully embraced by Nordic cinema: the whole- family pleasures – family movies and comedies (worthy of mention in this respect is the specific Danish black comedy); contemporary and historical drama with a marked social overreach; genre titles, including action, horror and thriller films; as well as the Nordic Noir crime fiction. Remarkable too is the art film and the deep-rooted tradition of movies for children and the young.
All the mentioned types and styles can be found in the four sections of Scandi 2017, whose aim it is to celebrate the sheer diversity, universality and viability of the Nordic film industries. Titles that have not yet been screened at Slovak cinemas are included in the Scandi Premieres section. You will be among the first in the world to see the extraordinary debut feature Sami Blood, featuring an excellent cast.
The third edition of the Nordic film festival includes a new section, Scandi Comedies. The fact that the French or the Italians are capable of making fine “light comedies” is generally known, yet that good comedies have also been shot in Scandinavia may come as a pleasant surprise to Scandi visitors. The section thus completes the concept of a festival presenting a variety of genres.
This year, we have also included the Scandi Kids section, which gained great acclaim within the first edition.
The Best of Scandi presents our selection of the most striking and most distinct Nordic films of the past few years, which have proved their forcibility at prominent global festivals and ranked among the most successful within the previous two editions of Scandi. They definitely deserve to be shown on the large screen again.
Welcome to Scandi 2017!
