Danish Cultural Center is hosting the first Nordic Film Festival in China from 18 to 26 March 2017, presented in collaboration with the Nordic Embassies in China. The program is diverse and made up of significant and carefully selected films from Denmark, Norway and Sweden. In total, 12 feature films from the three countries will be shown to film audiences in Beijing.

The festival will kick off with the award-winning film "Kon-Tiki" by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, noted and acknowledged for its adventurous and visually impressive storytelling. In addition, the screenings will be supported by a variety of talks and lectures from professionals about their perspectives and experience with filmmaking and storytelling. The idea is to provide the audience an opportunity to get acquainted with the Nordic way of thinking.
