Welcome to the leading film festival in Scandinavia. Göteborg Film Festival started in 1979 and attracts around 270,000 visitors each year, in cinemas and online. For 11 days at the end of January the festival will show around 250 films from more than 80 countries in about 700 screenings. In addition, the festival always offer a packed programme with talks, parties, industry activities and new meeting places.

Bringing the whole world to Göteborg has always been the festival’s motto, but the goal is also to be a springboard for new Nordic film out into the world. Every year the Nordic competition, Dragon Award Best Nordic Film, scrutinizes an upper-crust of competitors and the winner’s prize is 400,000 Swedish crowns.
