Transilvania International Film Festival (9 – 18th June, 2023, Cluj-Napoca) announces Nordic Focus, a complex program and the most significant of this type in the festival’s history, dedicated to a rich, diverse and innovative European cinematography, from the Nordic countries: Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Iceland. The program marks a collaboration with The Göteborg Film Festival and film institutes from all the five countries.

In 2023, Transilvania IFF continues its traditional partnerships with other international festivals and offers a carte blanche to the curators of Göteborg Film Festival who will contribute to the selection in Nordic Focus. With a history of more than 40 years, the Göteborg FF is the most important film event in the region and offers a generous platform to Nordic cinema, including a dedicated competition and industry events.

Nordic Focus will also mark partnerships with The Swedish Film Institute, The Danish Film Institute, The Finnish Film Foundation, The Norwegian Film Institute and The Icelandic Film Centre. The program will include more than 25 screenings, cine-concerts, special guests, events, and exhibitions. First announced titles: Driving Mum (r. Hilmar Oddsson, Islanda, 2022), Sick of Myself (r. Kristoffer Borgli, Norvegia, 2022) or Triangle of Sadness / Triunghiul Tristeții (r. Ruben Östlund, Suedia, 2022), the great winner of the Palme d'Or in Cannes 2022 will also be screened in the program.

Nordic Focus at Transilvania IFF is made possible with the support of the Embassy of Sweden in Bucharest, the Royal Embassy of Denmark in Romania, the Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway in Romania, and the Embassy of the Republic of Finland in Romania. The program is supported by the Department of Scandinavian Languages ​​and Literatures - Babeș-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca.
