NORDISK FILM & TV FOND
Established in 1990, the Nordisk Film & TV Fond’s primary purpose is to promote film and TV productions of high quality in the five Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden), by providing support for top-up financing of feature films, TV-fiction/series and creative documentaries with sufficient Nordic audience potential. See Guidelines and Application Forms for further details.
Nordisk Film & TV Fond also supports a range of initiatives to stimulate Nordic productions to travel further throughout our region (distribution and dubbing), and assists our professionals in developing and improving their knowledge and skills through our Master Classes/Workshops. In addition, the Fund supports film events of Nordic importance such as festivals, seminars or forums through our Film Cultural Initiatives Scheme.
Documentary Advisor, Karolina Lidin, and Project Manager, Lise Løwholm assess applications concerning production of documentaries.
Nordisk Film & TV Fond is also the administrator of the prestigious Nordic Council Film Prize and arranges and hosts the annual Nordic Talents held each autumn. Nordisk Film & TV Fond is based in Oslo, Norway. The CEO is Petri Kemppinen.
