Nordic Lights Film Festival coming to Seattle this month

The National Nordic Museum is getting ready for the annual festival of Nordic films, coming to Seattle later this month.

The 11th Annual Nordic Lights Film Festival (NLFF), happening at the SIFF Cinema Uptown (511 Queen Anne Ave N) from Feb. 28 to March 1, will bring a mix of contemporary and award-winning films from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.

“For a decade, we have offered NLFF to Seattle audiences as an avenue to experience Nordic cinema in all its forms,” Eric Nelson, CEO of the National Nordic Museum said in a release. “The festival gives us the opportunity to share the richness and diversity of the Nordic cultures through the lens of film.”

The opening film is Icelandic — called “The County” (Héraðið) — which tells the story of Inga, “a middle-aged dairy farmer who rebels against the all-powerful local Cooperative.” It will be shown on Friday, Feb . 28 at 7pm at SIFF. For a full line-up of films, click here.

Tickets will be sold for individual films or as full-festival passes; all are available online.
