About Nordic Council Film Prize

Purpose
The Nordic Council prizes aim to increase interest in culture and in collaboration on environmental issues, to recognise outstanding artistic and environmental initiatives and to raise the profile and increase the visibility of Nordic co-operation.

The prize-winning film
The winner of the prize will each year be announced during the Session of the Nordic Council. The prize is awarded to an artistically significant, Nordic-produced full-length feature film with distribution. The DKK 300,000 prize will be shared equally among the screenwriter, director, and producer.

Criteria for nomination
The nominated films must have deep roots in Nordic culture, be of high artistic quality, distinguish themselves by their artistic originality, and combine and elevate the many elements of film into a compelling and holistic work of art.

National and Nordic jury
Each national jury consists of three members appointed by the Nordic Council of Ministers (Ministers for Culture). The members are selected from prominent figures whose work relates analytically and critically to film.

Each national jury has a three-year tenure, and the members of the national juries for 2023 are:

Denmark: Heidi Hilarius-Kalkau Philipsen*, Jacob Ludvigsen, Amalie Næsby Fick

Finland: Mikaela Westerlund*, Kalle Kinnunen, Kaisu Isto

Greenland: Klaus Georg Hansen*, Otto Rosing, Inuk Jørgensen

Iceland: Jóna Finnsdóttir*, Guðrún Helga Jónasdóttir, Björn Þór Vilhjálmsson

Norway: Inger Merete Hobbelstad*, Emilio Sanhueza, Anne Gjelsvik

Sweden: Emma Gray Munthe*, Caroline Cowan, Gunnar Bergdahl

The Nordic jury is made up of the chairs (*) of each of the national juries.
