  • Store Isbjørn and Lille Isbjørn are travel scholarships for Danish film talents to develop artistic and technical skills while travelling abroad.
  • Isbjørn Project Scheme enforcing innovation and talent development. 
  • Isbjørn Signature are self-initiated projects such as The Polar Bear Author Camp and PictureThis_
  • Nordisk Film Fonden awards three awards in Denmark at ISBJØRNEN, one in Norway, one in Finland and one in Sweden.

Our purpose is to strengthen great storytelling & digital competences among talents in the film industry.


PICTURE THIS_ is a tech conference initiated and empowered by Nordisk Film Fonden dedicated to exploring the intersection of storytelling, technology and the film narrative. PICTURE THIS_ aims to inspire filmmakers to work smarter and to be more innovative by using new technology to optimize workflows, maximize production value, increase artistic creativity and in the end, reinforce the continued development of the cinematic art form.
