  • 57th Nordic Film Days Lübeck – Attendance tops 30,000 – 180 films and numerous side-bar events sparked enthusiastic audience participation

    Lübeck, Nov. 9, 2015. With audiences continually increasing in recent years, the 57th Nordic Film Days Lübeck (Nov. 4 – 8, 2015) broke its own record this year, with attendance figures reaching 30,500. Yesterday was the final day of the NFL, presented by the Hanseatic city-state of Lübeck, and the two festival directors Linde Fröhlich (artistic director) and Christian Modersbach (managing director) were very upbeat about this year's festival. “We had many high-quality films on the programme; films that audiences enjoyed and which opened up them up to new points of view. And Lübeck residents may also have gotten a new outlook on their city, including the refugee situation. We’re especially pleased about the young NDR Film Prize winner and the high production values of his film. We had a lot of fun bringing people together, the way the films and events of the Nordic Film Days do.” More

    Lübeck, Nov. 7, 2015. A Norwegian film has won the main prize at the Nordic Film Days Lübeck (Nov. 4 – 8, 2015). Director Henrik Martin Dahlsbakken seemed over the moon as he accepted the NDR Film Prize, endowed with 12,500 euros, from the jury for his film “Returning Home” (“Å vende tilbake").

    The strong showing of Icelandic films in this year’s festival was reflected in the awards as well. “Virgin Mountain” (Fúsi) not only won the Lübecker Nachrichten Audience Prize (endowed with 5,000 euros) but also the Interfilm Church Prize, endowed with 2,500 euros donated by the Lübeck-Lauenburg Protestant-Lutheran church district. Director Dagur Kári was on hand to personally accept the prize. He was accompanied by lead actor Gunnar Jónsson, who received an honourable mention for his performance in the film. More
