The Nordic Talents Special Mention 2022 goes to the Norwegians Håkon Anton Olavsen (director) and Sunniva Kviteberg (writer) for the film Titanic Club (Drama/Romance/Comedy, 90 min)
This is the story about Vebjørn and Oona. About their fight to overcome barriers within themselves, in order to give in to each other. It’s a tender and ridiculous story about longing, fear, falling behind, and falling in love.
PITCHED BY HÅKON ANTON OLAVSEN (DIRECTOR) AND SUNNIVA KVITEBERG (SCRIPTWRITER)
The Norwegian Film School.
The Nordic Talents Special Mention is awarded to a project pitched during the pitching sessions at Nordic Talents that the jury takes special interest in, in addition to the winner of the main prize. The Jury of 2022 consists of Charlotte Sieling (Denmark), Ilkka Matila (Finland), Diana Bartha (France), Marianne Furevold (Norway) and Carl Javér (Sweden). The Jury states:
“It’s all inclusive. Lots of humour, vulnerability, and fear of intimacy. We run away from the thing we most want, which is love. The project deals with an under explored phenomena in the aspects of a young adult’s romantic and sexual life in a very honest way. We want to award a very talented writer and a very talented director on their shared path in this very promising film project.”
