Scandinavian Film Festival L.A., sponsored by ASFLA, comes to the Writers Guild Theater on Fri., Sat. and Sun., Jan. 14, 15, and 16, 2005. The sixth annual 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 screens 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.
Scandinavian Film Festival L.A. is underwritten by ASFLA, with Danzka Vodka, Scandinavian consulates, and generous support of national film organizations, individuals and corporate donors. Donors receive festival admission, listing in the program, and an invitation to an exclusive after-party at a Scandinavian consulate. To become a sponsor, call (323)661-4273 or email ASFLA.
