Highlights from NIFF 2016

We focus on the filmmakers and getting them the press and the opportunities for distribution or exposure they deserve. Sometimes we forget to showcase what we at NIFF does. We say, better late than never here are the highlights from the Nordic International Film Festival 2016. Check out what we were up to last year!
