Works in Progress

Our Works in Progress section gives a sneak preview of upcoming Nordic feature films. Here, exclusive clips/scenes from each film is presented by the film’s director and/or producer. The presentations help create awareness of the films, and provide participants with an intimate and unique meeting with upcoming Nordic films.
