This year, the Nordic & Baltic Oscar Contenders series returns to Scandinavia House in a hybrid format! In coordination with Scandinavian Film Festival L.A. with BalticFilmExpo@SFFLA, Scandinavia House is pleased to offer virtual screenings of films chosen by the Nordic & Baltic countries to compete for the Oscar nomination for the Best International Feature Film, available to viewers across the U.S. on the weekends of January 6, 13, as well as 20. The virtual series will include a minimum of eight films in total, screened over weekends in January; check back here for more details on upcoming virtual screenings. Passholders will receive priority reservation for limited screenings taking place later this month.

During the weekend of January 20-23, the program comprises screenings of the Swedish documentary The Most Beautiful Boy in the World (dir. Kristian Petri & Kristina Lindstrom, Sweden, 2021); President (dir. Camilla Nielsson; Denmark/Norway/USA, 2021), shortlisted for Best Documentary Feature for the 94th Academy Awards; and Compartment No. 6 (dir. Juho Kuosmanen, Finland/Estonia/Germany/Russia, 2021).

Festival films will be available to ticket holders all over the U.S. Each session is limited to 300 tickets in an effort to preserve the intimate and communal experience. The sessions will take place over four days (Thursday — Sunday), and all films from the session will be available for viewing on a virtual cinema screening platform throughout this period.
