French Films in Scandinavia

A recap of the Tromsø and Göteborg International Film Festivals.

The Tromsø International Film Festival (TIFF), which was held January 18 through 24, offered Norwegian audiences a retrospective of seven films by Claire Denis including Chocolat, her first feature film, Nénette et Boni, and 35 Shots of Rum. Claire Denis was in Tromsø to present her latest film, White Material, and also took the opportunity to speak with local spectators during a masterclass organized by the festival, which attracted large numbers. This festival, held on the northern tip of Norway, is one of the country's largest film festivals. This year it celebrated its 20th anniversary.
Three other French feature films were showcased at the event, with Around a Small Mountain by Jacques Rivette and Hadewijch by Bruno Dumont selected in the competition, and A Prophet by Jacques Audiard screened in the Horizons Section.

Just days after this event, the Göteborg International Film Festival opened its doors (held January 29 through February 6). Claire Denis also traveled to the event to present White Material (distributed by Folkets Bio. This festival is one of Scandinavia's key film festivals and a major meeting point for Scandinavian movie professionals. The festival's 11 sections include some 14 French productions (solely or majority produced by France), including Inspector Bellamy, The Army of Crime, The Refuge, Inferno, and Demain des l'aube.
Albert Pereira Lazaro and Emmanuel Klotz, directors of the animated film Round da way, were also in attendance to present their film.
