| Filmkontakt Nord is an organisation by the filmmakers for the filmmakers, a mainstay for Nordic co-operation. Staying Relevant. Staying at the forefront.
During its many years of activity, FkN has established itself as a unique central source of information and expertise, catering to the needs of the Nordic independent short film and documentary community, and meeting the demands of the international market.
FkN's main function is to serve as a common Nordic platform for a stronger production and distribution network within the Nordic countries and a visible united exposure internationally, joining a strong cultural profile with a driven and future-oriented industrial perspective.
The various FkN activities are designed to support these objectives.
Nordisk Panorama is the main platform for short films and documentaries in the Nordic region regularly attended by 600 - 800 professionals from more than 20 countries. The event is comprised of Nordisk Panorama Film Festival, Nordisk Forum for Co-financing of Documentaries, Nordisk Panorama Market and Nordisk Panorama Outlook. Nordisk Panorama has been ambulating between the five Nordic countries since 1990, and Filmkontakt Nord has organised the event in close cooperation with the five host cities Bergen, Aarhus, Oulu, Malmö and Reykjavík.
Nordisk Panorama Market Online
Staying up-to-date with the demands of the ever evolving industry, FkN in 2008 launched Nordisk Panorama Market Online - a digital promotional service for Nordic short films and documentaries aimed at international tv-buyers, distributors sales agents and festival programmers on the look-out for Nordic high quality content. Thus approved and registered professionals can keep abreast with the latest and greatest from the Nordic countries at their own convenience around the clock.
