The eighth annual Scandinavian Film Festival L.A., sponsored by ASFLA, comes to the Writers Guild Theater, Beverly Hills, and spans two weekends: Saturday, 6 January, Friday, 12 January, and Saturday, 13 January, 2007. 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.
