Young and up-and-coming Nordic filmmakers are invited to attend the Nordic Film Lab co-funding talent platform, with a four-day introduction in Gothenburg and subsequent meetings in Copenhagen and Oslo. In Nordic Film Lab Discovery, five new film projects will be presented to potential partners: Danish director Puk Grasten's War - What If It Was Here?, Norwegian filmmaker Bård Røssevold's The Comet, and Swedish directors Viktor Johansson's Bonsai Kitten, Ninja Thyberg's Jessica and Viktor Lindgren's The Unpromised Land

At this year's sold-out TV Drama Vision conference on 1-2 February, the 295 participants will meet “Game Changers and Creators” and watch TV dramas from the Nordic countries, with Belgium featured as a special guest. US-French producer and former senior VP at HBO Anne Thomopoulos will talk about how she built up the Drama Series and Mini-Series departments at the US cable and satellite TV network.

Since 2014, the festival's Nostradamus initiative, set up with Lindholmen Science Park, has published an annual report looking ahead: where are we now, and what will happen in the next three to five years? At a seminar on 2 February, Finnish-Swedish media analyst Johanna Koljonen will present the 2017 topics, which include forthcoming developments in exhibition technologies and formats, and virtual-reality storytelling.
