Göteborg Film Festival is the largest film festival in the Nordic countries. Each year the festival’s program group travels around the world to track down choice films to bring back to Göteborg. These films are then presented during the ten-day festival at the end of January, creating a great banquet serving audiences nearly 450 films from some 80 countries.
Bringing the whole world to Göteborg has always been the festival’s motto, but the goal is also to be a springboard for new Nordic film out into the world. Every year the Nordic competition, Dragon Award Best Nordic Film, scrutinizes an upper-crust of competitors. The winner’s prize is among one of the film world’s largest: one million Swedish crowns.
Göteborg Film Festival began in 1979 and each year attracts more than 160,000 visits.
The festival’s industry section, with Nordic Film Market at the vanguard, is the foremost marketplace for Nordic film and TV drama as well as an important meeting place industry visitors from all over the world.
Göteborg Children’s Film Festival is held the weekend preceding the film festival proper. This is a festival at cinema Draken, packed with films and events for younger audiences. Read more here.
Yet the festival is not just about film: we also invite you to some 40 seminars as well as live music performances, art exhibits and many other activities.
During the festival takes place the Nordic Film Market, the principal market for Nordic feature films and the meeting place and networking platform for the Scandinavian and international film industry attending Göteborg Film Festival. The market presents new films available for distribution, work in progress, film projects in development, spotting talent and trends in film from the Nordic region (Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland).
