The thirteenth annual Scandinavian Film Festival L.A., sponsored by ASFLA, comes to the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills, spanning two weekends: Saturday and Sunday, January 7 –8; and Saturday and Sunday, January 14–15, 2012.
Scandinavian Film Festival L.A. is Los Angeles' annual showcase of Nordic films and filmmakers, screening each year's Scandinavian films submitted to the Academy as nominees for Best Foreign-Language Film. Held at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills, CA, it also shows documentaries, short subjects and other pictures by Scandinavian filmmakers. Non-competitive, the festival gives Southern California audiences and Motion Picture Academy members an opportunity to see the best in contemporary film from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
Parent organization of Scandinavian Film Festival is the American Scandinavian Foundation of Los Angeles. Support for the festival includes individuals, organizations, and corporate sponsorship, with the assistance of The Danish Film Institute, Swedish Film Institute, the Norwegian Film Institute, the Finnish Film Foundation, and the Icelandic Film Centre. The festival is proud to partner with ELMA—European Languages and Movies in America, the Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation, SWEA (Swedish Women’s Educational Association), the Royal Norwegian Consulate, and the Finnish Consulate, with help from the local honorary Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, and Icelandic Consulates in the concerted effort to bring Nordic film culture to the Los Angeles/Hollywood cultural scene.
