The Volvo Scandinavian Film brings breathtaking contemporary Nordic cinema to Palace Cinemas screens from 10 July in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Brisbane and Hobart. The diverse program features an esteemed selection of films from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Finland.


Opening the festival is UNDER THE TREE, a very dark comedy from Icelandic writer-director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson. The shade from a front-yard tree sees the already simmering tensions between two families come to the boil in an astute observation of suburban mores. Mid-way through the 20-day festival will be special event screenings of AMATEURS, winner of the 2018 Göteborg Film Festival award for Best Nordic Film. The comedy from director Gabriela Pichler hints at the changing face of Sweden as two high school girls use mobiles and selfie-sticks to create a promotional video for their town.
