Nordic International Film Festival covered by Access New York. (SWEDISH)

The Nordic International Film Festival (NIFF) was a successful inaugural event packed with an incredible audience. Over 500 attendees and over 20 filmmakers gathered for two full days at the renowned Scandinavia House in New York.

NIFF 2015 included 7 world premiers, 13 North American Premiers in their 22 film screening line up from their Official Selection. What made NIFF feel like a long run established festival right from the start, was the warm welcome and organized team, as well as the extremely high amount of attending filmmakers that flew in just for NIFF.

We are very excited to be back in New York 2016 with 3 evenings in October 28th, 29th and 30th at Scandinavia House. We will be screening New York and World Premiers of new Nordic and international short and feature films. This year we are sponsored by Rekorderlig Cider that will provide drinks during the event as well as amazing prizes from our Swedish sponsors; Daniel Wellington, Face Stockholm and Sandqvist. We hope to see you there.
