Nordic Council Film Prize 2024

Films eligible for the Film Prize 2024 must be Nordic-produced full-length feature films or documentaries, and have had its national cinema premiere between 1 July 2023 and 30 June 2024. The nominated films must 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.

The prize will be shared equally among the screenwriter, director, and producer, underscoring how film as an art form is brought about by the close collaboration of these three main contributors.
