The upcoming 22nd edition of the Nordic Film Market is inviting along a total of 21 new feature-film projects – 13 in post-production and eight in development – and will present them to market delegates entirely digitally. The principal marketplace in the region is due to run from 4-7 February, during the 44th Göteborg Film Festival (29 January-8 February). All of the projects will be presented on the festival’s digital platform on 5 February, and the session will also be made available afterwards.
