Five Days & Five Nordic Films

From this Saturday through next Wednesday (Oct 16th through 20th) the five films competing for the 2010 Nordic Council Film Prize will be shown at the Klara Cinema in the Culture House (Kulturhuset). Each of the five Nordic countries will be represented by a movie. The good news for foreign visitors is that 4 of the 5 movies will be in English or at least have English subtitles. The movies in English will of course have Swedish subtitles. Here are the films being shown:

The criteria a film needs to meet to be nominated is to be "rooted in Nordic culture and of high artistic quality. It must also stand out through its artistic originality, and refine the many elements of film in a convincing and integrated work." So viewing one of these movies on a chilly autumn day might be the perfect way to immerse yourself in Nordic culture! Two movies will be shown each day, so you have a couple of chances to see each film. Kulturhuset is located on Sergel's Square in the downtown area. If you are interested in seeing one of these movies, please contact me at the hotel for more information on times and tickets.
