Winner of the Audience Award at the 2018 Göteborg Film Festival, WHAT WILL PEOPLE SAY is a compelling coming-of-age drama in which a Norwegian teen fights against the traditional values and expectations of her Pakistani immigrant parents.

Winner of the 2018 Danish Academy Awards Best Film, WINTER BROTHERS shot in Denmark and Iceland, follows two brothers whose routines, habits, and rituals are ruptured by a violent feud with a neighbouring family.

Vibrant comedy AMATEURS won the 2018 Göteborg Film Festival award for Best Nordic Film acts as a commentary on the changing face of Sweden. Using mobiles and selfie sticks, two high school girls document their declining provincial town.
