Presented by Palace Cinemas, the fourth Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival will be heading to Canberra between 18 July and 2 August with a spread of 20 films from the Nordic region.

The exciting program opens with Aki Kaurismäki’s The Other Side of Hope (pictured), winner of the Silver Bear for Best Director 2017 at this year’s Berlinale.

Both important and hugely entertaining, the film reflects the modern day experience of one immigrant in Finland, providing an optimistic vision of a troubled world.

The festival will also feature special screenings of The King’s Choice, Norway’s official selection for the 2017 Academy Awards and Fipresci prize winner, Tom of Finland.
