Immerse yourself in the world of Nordic cinema at the fifth annual Nordic Lights Film Festival (NLFF), a three-day festival featuring contemporary, award-winning films from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and Greenland. Held at SIFF Cinema at Seattle Center, this is a rare chance to view feature-length movies, shorts, and documentaries from the Nordic countries on the big screen.

Among the great line-up this year is Inuk (Greenland) from director Mike Magidson. The film follows the epic journey of 16-year-old Inuk and local polar bear hunter Ikuma across fragile sea ice, through the bitter cold, and within themselves. Another highlight is A Hijacking/Kapringen out of Denmark, a psychological thriller that follows a Danish cargo ship and its crew as the ship is hijacked by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean.

    I would love to attend the festival because it is a wonderful opportunity to share art from my heritage with my wife! We love watching foreign films and the chance to see these would be amazing!

    Winning tickets to the film festival, Nordic,
    Would be a thrill and more than fantastic,
    Cultures from Norway, Sweden and Denmark,
    Can give the imagination a great big spark.

    Why should you pick me, you ask,
    One: Nordic films I’d like to grasp;
    Two: I’ve never gone in the past;
    Three: I’d go to every film, even the last;
    And four, it would help me have a blast.

    So, thank you for this opportunity,
    I appreciate all you do for this community,
    Your consideration means a lot to me,
    The Nordic Film Festival would be awesome to see.

    I would love to attend the Nordic Film Festival. I have long had a fascination with Scandinavian culture and am a cinefile, this combination makes sense. I’m so proud of SIFF for its diverse programming and the city of Seattle for allowing us opportunities to experience culture in so many ways. And to the Pipeline, for giving its readers chances to win tickets to awesome events like this!

    I am in a mixed marriage. My hubby is an import from Norway and I am from the Seattle area. We lived in Narvik, Norway for 2 years of our 20 year marriage. It is always nice to have an opportunity to enjoy movies and music from Scandinavia and Finland. It helps quell his homesickness (or fuels it). We would love to attend. Tusen takk!

    “shame, guilt, crime, alcoholism, and family secrets:” sounds like my sort of thing.

    The Nordic Lights film Festival is a chance to learn from other cultures

    I’d love to go to the film fest, I’ve never been and it sounds fascinating!

  17. Anna January 17, 2014 at 12:38 am #

    This sounds brilliant (literally). I love subtitles, I love movies, and I love international arts and culture. Just reading the descriptions makes me want to curl up into a movie chair and get cozy.

    I would absolutely LOVE to win tickets to this festival because I a crazy about Scandinavian films and never saw a movie from Greeland. Please let this be the winning comment!

  19. Keith January 17, 2014 at 5:28 am #

    This looks great. Its going to rain this weekend and being inside watching Nordic movies sounds wonderful.

  20. Deborah January 17, 2014 at 5:30 am #

    A Nordic Film Festival is a fantastic idea. Their movies are not well known here, but really you get such a variety of quirky, interesting, characters in these films. Would love to go.

    We are planning on moving to a Scandinavian country, so why not.
