Nordic Lights Film Festival

9th Annual Film Festival


The Nordic Lights Film Festival is devoted to showcasing Nordic cinema.

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

Submissions are now being accepted for NLFF 2019! We accept submissions for feature, short, and documentary films. For guidelines and more details, please contact Stina Cowan at [email protected].

Deadline: September 1, 2018
