Benjamin Ree Nordisk Film Prisen

Nordisk Film Prisen Norway and Finland

In 2015, the Nordisk Film Foundation awarded the Nordisk Film Prize in Norway for the first time.
The Nordic Film Prize in Norway is a talent prize of NOK 100,000. In 2019 the same prize was awarded in Finland. 

The talent prize is to honor a film talent behind the camera, which has particularly distinguished itself in one of the year's film productions and which helps to raise the quality and further develop respectively Norwegian and Finnish films. The prizes are awarded at local events. Nordisk Film Fonden has since 1996 awarded a similar prize in Denmark.

The Norwegian prize committee consists of 6 people:

  • Sveinung Golimo, Head of Nordisk Film Production Norway (Chairman)
  • Martin Sundland (Producer)
  • Grete Bø Wahl (Director)
  • Rolf Kristian Larsen (Actor)
  • Vibeke Skistad (Euforia Film)
  • Mette Bølstad (Screenwriter)
