Young Nordic Filmmakers (YNFM)

Four participants from each of four countries will work together for a week on their own short documentary film projects. Under the guidance of filmmakers attending this year’s festival, they’ll have the opportunity to get a bit closer to realising their dreams of becoming filmmakers.

The YNFM from Norway, Finland, Denmark and Germany will shoot their own short documentary films during the 59th Nordic Film Days Lübeck from Oct. 29 to Nov. 5 and make their first real contacts in the film industry.

All short films will be screened publicly in Lübeck on the final day of the festival on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 12:00 am at the festival cinema CineStar Filmpalast Stadthalle, hall 1. Free Admission. 

Young Nordic Filmmakers 2017 is a project of the 59th Nordic Film Days Lübeck in cooperation with “Station Next,” the Danish film school for young people; the “Nordic Youth Film Festival – NUFF,” founded by the Youth Culture Centre TVIBIT in Tromsø (Norway); and the Finnish Oulu International Children’s and Youth Film Festivals.

The project is made possible through the friendly assistance and financial support of the Bundesverband Jugend und Film e.V. – The German Federation of Film Clubs for Children and Young People, funded by the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ), the Landesverband Jugend- und Film Schleswig Holstein (LJF), the Studentenwerk Schleswig-Holstein as well as the Nordic Culture Fund.
