We are proud to present the most extensive competition program for Amandus Blikkfang ever! A total of 37 Nordic films are nominated for this year's film competition, and we look forward to showcasing a very broad and varied program in Lillehammer.
It hasn’t been a small task to review and select this year’s films for Amandus Blikkfang. With a record-high number of entries, and so many excellent films submitted, it’s been a challenging job to come to the final selection. We have stretched the screening slots as far as possible to squeeze in even more films, but ultimately, there’s a limit to how many can fit.
Therefore, the competition has been sky-high, and there are also good films that unfortunately couldn’t be included this year.
This year, we have 15 Nordic films (from other countries than Norway), and all Nordic countries are represented. It’s also exciting to see that this year there is actually a majority of female directors on the films (22 women and 19 men).
This year’s selection committee consisted of Mone Frogg Christiansen, Frøydis Fossli Moe, Øystein Egge, and Eivind M. Nordengen.
And here are the nominees:
