“A multifaceted reflection of these times in our lives, the battles, the desires and the confusion. It’s engaged and combative, but also romantic, playful and challenging.” Such reads the summing up of the introduction to the 46th edition of the Göteborg Film Festival, unspooling from 27 January-5 February and showcasing 250 titles from 80 countries, including 50 world premieres. Add to this an array of panels, parties and assorted presentations, all under the honourable banner of bringing the world to Göteborg and serving as a springboard for new Nordic film.

“To bring Nordic cinema out into the world and to be the greatest film festival in the world for Nordic cinema is our particular dedication,” says artistic director Jonas Holmberg. “It’s our niche on this planet, as it were.” A thankful task, not least in view of last year’s successes with a record Nordic Cannes attendance and Sweden getting the Palme d’Or. “It’s been incredibly strong, not least artistically. The variety is great, and we’re doing our best to keep on nourishing it,” Holmberg beams while discussing the abundant smorgasbord at hand, lovingly prepared and providing ample opportunities to sample some of the recent world cinema titles of note.
