TICKETS ON SALE NOW

The region of Scandinavia - culturally comprised of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland and Denmark - has produced some of the most iconic films ever made. From the masterpieces of Ingmar Bergman, to the radical, back-to-basics guerrilla-style filmmaking of the Dogme revolution, to the contemporary and transnational diversity of Nordic cinema. 

Palace Nova Cinemas is proud to present this festival from July 19 - 30, created to offer a dedicated focus to an area of screen culture that has for too long been under-represented in Australia.

At Palace Nova Eastend Cinemas July 19 - 30
