A press release came in this morning from Nordisk Panorama. The film program for the festival is already made, selection has been done. Here is an edited clip from the text and mention of some of the titles for the Documentary section:
”Nordisk Panorama Film Festival takes place between 21-26 September in Malmö Sweden. Out of 562 submitted titles, 55 films have now been selected as nominees to Nordisk Panorama Awards 2017.
There are three competitive sections: Best Nordisk Documentary, Best Nordic Short Film and Best New Nordic Voice, a fourth catagory is the Audience Award, sponsored by the city of Malmö.”
Already well known and awarded Nordic documentaries at international festivals compete: Elvira Lind’s ”Bobbi Jene”, Feras Fayyad’s ”Last Men in Aleppo”, Morten Traavik’s musical documentary ”Liberation Day”, ”Nowhere to Hide” (PHOTO) by Zaradasht Ahmed, ”The War Show” by Andreas Møl Dalsgaard and Obaidah Zytoon… and many other that I look forward to see like John Webster’s ”Little Yellow Boots” and ”Death of a Child” by Frida Matilda Barkfors & Lasse Barkfors.
