ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Nordic Film Days Lübeck, first presented by the Lübeck Film Club in 1956 and taken over by the Hanseatic City of Lübeck in 1971, has one of the longest traditions of any film festival worldwide. It is the only festival in Germany, and the only one on the European continent, which is entirely devoted to the presentation of films from the North and Northeast of Europe.
Feature films, documentaries and short films from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden are presented at this five-day event every year at the beginning of November. In addition, there is an extensive children's and youth film programme, a section for Nordic and Baltic drama series as well as one for Immersive Media, including 360° + VR films. A retrospective is devoted to important eras, specific genres or famous persons of film history. The section Filmforum presents films from North Germany (Schleswig-Holstein and Hamburg). Accompanying the film programme are seminars, discussions, roundtable talks, concerts and readings.
