The Swedish package includes Danish director Nanna Frank Møller's Embracing the Dead, about a forensic expert used to perform autopsies, now on an unusual case, which needs his professional judgement. Antonio Russo Merenda will produce for Denmark's Made in Copenhagen and Sweden's Ginestra Film.

Swedish director Ninja Thyberg has prepared Hot Chicks, a short following five girls in a dressing-room waiting to shoot a "fun and playful" music video, where they will be wriggling their bums, strutting their stuff. Anja Byvald will stage their preparations for Silverosa Film.

Scripted by Bjørn-Erik Hansen, it will be produced by Bustness and Christian Falch for Faction Film.

Norwegian director Linda Steinhoff's documentary Norway - Country of Rape depicts how rape victims are met by the system, and how sometimes in a way the system is seen as yet another abuser. Herself a rape victim 16 years ago, Steinhoff will work with producer Jo Torgersen for ITV Studios Norway.
