SAXO Scandinavian Film Festival 17 July – 14 August 2024

July 17 @ 5:00 pm - August 14 @ 9:30 pm

Celebrating a decade on Australian cinema screens, the 2024 Saxo Scandinavian Film Festival continues to showcase the best contemporary Nordic cinema selected from major international film festivals and markets.

Geographically, Scandinavia refers to the Northern European sub-region of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, but over a decade ago at the Cannes Film Festival the idea was born to incorporate more countries from the Nordic region into a festival for the Australian audience to experience.

This year’s festival features films that bear the hallmarks of Nordic cinema – sweeping dramas, crime thrillers, black comedy and spectacular cinematography and landscapes. The retrospective also pays homage to the iconic collaboration between Liv Ullmann and Ingmar Bergman, with four celebrated films.

With a superb lineup set to warm the hearts and minds of cinemagoers this winter, the 2024 Saxo Scandinavian Film Festival returns to Palace, Palace Nova and Luna Palace Cinemas from July until August. Presenting the best new cinema from the Nordic region, a first look at festival highlights has been announced with films from Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Iceland, featuring a selection of epic dramas, sweeping romances and stunning visuals.
