For the forth year of our successful collaboration in the discussion series « The circulation and promotion of Scandinavian films », Europa Distribution and New Nordic Films will this year take a closer look at the film value chain, and more specifically at how essential each link is for the success of the film, and at how the different parts of the chain can work best together.
We will follow the wonderful voyage of Danish hit Queen of Hearts: How was she born? How was she raised? And how is she finally breaking the hearts of so many people around the globe? These are some of the fascinating questions that will be explored together with those who created, promoted and circulated Queen of Hearts, making it accessible worldwide.
The session will be moderated by Wendy Mitchell, journalist and film festival consultant, United Kingdom. With the help of all speakers, Wendy will lead us through the life of the film Queen of Hearts and we will get a better understanding of how each profession is a key in the film’s success.
