The Nordic Council Film Prize was first awarded in 2002 and then permanently established in 2005, and is to be juxtaposed with the Nordic Council Literature Prize, The Nordic Council Music Prize, and the Nordic Council Environment Prize. The prize is DKK 300,000, and is to be shared equally between the film's director, screenwriter and producer. The winner will be announced during the Award Ceremony in Helsinki 1 November.
The purpose of the Film Prize is to promote the selection and circulation of Nordic films in the region with the intention of strengthening the Nordic cultural community and develop the Nordic region as a cultural domestic market. The nominated films are meant to benefit from the Film Prize, both culturally and commercially, in a Nordic and global perspective.
