Nordisk Film & TV Fond has unveiled the list of Nordic graduation students and their projects running for the $30,000 (NOK250,000) pitch prize and $6,000 (Nok 50,000) special mention prize at Nordic Talents (Aug 31-Sept 2).

Petri Kemppinen, Nordisk Film & TV Fond CEO, said: “This year we have many projects targeting children and young audiences, and several comedies. The competition to get in was tougher as for the first time we asked applicants to submit a development plan for their project. I think this was helpful for both the students and the selection group. It is also interesting to note the 60/40 female representation in the submissions and selection.” 

In addition to the pitching sessions, Nordic Talents will screen the graduation films of all selected film students. 

This year’s Nordic Talents jury comprises Norwegian director/writer Sara Johnsen, Danish animation director/comics artist Anders Morgenthaler, Swedish producer Lars Blomgren of Filmlance, Finnish writer/producer Petja Peltomaa of Yellow Film & TV and Kristina »

Yes, I’ve just proclaimed myself to be a dinosaur and I still read the newspaper every morning over breakfast.  Yes, I know they offer electronic editions but I like one I can hold in my hands.

Assuming there is more than one local newspaper (or local-ish), I have to make a choice as to which one I’ll read. I have two primary criterions – where they fall on the political spectrum and what comic strips they have. The latter may be more important to me than the former. I was raised in a Republican household in Chicago so we got »
