"Take Three," the third annual Nordic film extravaganza sponsored by not-for-profit ASFLA, was held Feb. 1, 2 and 3, 2002, at the Writers' Guild Theatre in Beverly Hills, Calif. It was the second sequel to the successful LA showcase of Scandinavian films and filmmakers launched in 2000. Each year, the festival pivots around the Scandinavian films submitted to the Academy Awards® for consideration as nominees in the Best Foreign-Film category, with additional screenings of short subjects and documentaries. Non-competitive in nature, the festival gives LA audiences a chance to see the best in Nordic filmmaking, as well as provides a fertile ground for networking.
