Journeys, portrayed in all their declensions, will be the main theme of the sixth edition of the Nordic Film Fest, which will be held at the Casa del Cinema in Rome from Thursday 4 May to Sunday 7 May. The event, which was born with the aim of promoting the films and culture of the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden), is organised by the four Nordic embassies present in Italy in partnership with the Scandinavian Circle in Rome, and will screen premieres and films that have yet to be released in Italy.
