WINNER BEST NORDIC DOCUMENTARY
Nelly & Nadine gets the Best Nordic Documentary Award at Nordisk Panorama.
At the closing ceremony of the 33rd edition of Nordisk Panorama, Nelly & Nadine was awarded with the Best Nordic Documentary Award. This is the main award at Nordisk Panorama Film Festival, for feature length documentaries.
In their motivation for awarding Nelly & Nadine the jury stated:
“This film has succeeded in making alive unknown faces from history, highlighting a deeply human and tender love story. Masterfully using the archive, poetic visual language and approaching its main characters with love and empathy and deep respect. Opening gradually layers of love, memory, identity and friendship, so the voices from the past speak to us in the context of today's challenges.”
Best Nordic Documentary is the competition program at Nordisk Panorama where 15 selected documentaries from the Nordic countries compete for the main award.
Nordisk Panorama Film Festival is the annual flagship event that for the past 32 years has been showing a selection of the best Nordic shorts and docs in curated competitions and special programmes, awarding the very best Nordic documentaries and short films.
The award for Best Nordic Documentary is the 9th international award for Nelly & Nadine following the world premiere at Berlinale in February earlier this year.
