“The nominations were shared by ten films, and even more were close to being candidates, which shows that 2015 was a very strong film year for Denmark, both quality-wise, and in terms of depth and variety,” said Copenhagen-based critic Jacob Wendt Jensen, chairman of the Danish Film Critics Association. In collaboration with the Nordea Foundation, the prize ceremony will be shown simultaneously at cinemas all over Denmark.
