The ninth annual Scandinavian Film Festival L.A. comes to the Writers Guild Theater, Beverly Hills, and spans two weekends: Saturday and Sunday, 5-6 January; and Saturday and Sunday, 12-13 January, 2008. The yearly showcase of Nordic films and filmmakers, launched in 2000, screens the year’s Scandinavian films submitted to the Academy as nominees for Best Foreign-Language Film. It also offers documentaries, short subjects and other pictures by Scandinavian filmmakers. Non-competitive, the festival gives Southern California audiences an opportunity to see the best in contemporary film from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Read the press release.
Scandinavian Film Festival L.A. is underwritten by ASFLA with Scandinavian consulates, and generous support of national film organizations, individuals and corporate donors. If you'd like to become a festival sponsor, please go to the Donate page.
