The director of Film Europe, Ivan Hronec, who is also behind the Scandi festival, said that the festival with ten or 15 films is not a complete demonstration of the production value and creative potential of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland.

“Through Scandi, Czech and Slovak viewers will always see a film that eventually represents and over time defines not only the production qualities of a particular country but also the entire Nordic region,” Hronec said.

The festival brings several premiers of Nordic movies into Slovak cinemas, such as Margrete – Queen of the North, Wild Men, Flee, Ninjababy, Tove, Tigers, The Most Beautiful Boy in the World, Project Z, Ladies of Steel, and The Pact.
