Nordisk Film Fonden's Honorary Awards reward talent and new voices contributing to quality and diversity in film. In 2017 we launched the award show ISBJØRNEN presenting Nordisk Film Fonden’s three honorary awards in Denmark in one show.
Every year Nordisk Film Fonden awards three awards in Denmark, one in Norway and one in Finland with the aim of rewarding the talent for an extraordinary effort. The decision of recipients of the different prizes is taken in designated committees. Each prize has its purpose and its committee.
The three Danish awards are awarded in connection with ISBJØRNEN - the Nordisk Film Fonden award show that takes place each year in November in connection with Nordisk Films birthday.
The Nordisk Film Award in Norway and Finland are given at local events in these countries.
