Two Danish Oscar-winning directors – Bille August (Pelle the Conqueror/1988) and Susanne Bier (In a Better World/2010) – have joined the contingency of 33 filmmakers from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden heading for the 13th Marrakech International Film Festival, which will stage the largest focus so far on Scandinavian Cinema outside the Nordic countries.

Unspooling between November 29-December 7, the Moroccan festival will screen 47 Nordic features – from Carl Th Dreyer and Victor Sjöström’s 1928 classics to the most recent premieres. “Since its beginning Marrakech has been a showcase for the quality and diversity of Scandinavian cinema, and the 13th edition will continue to reinforce the close ties between the Northern Lights and the radiance of Morocco,” said festival director Mélita Toscan du Plantier.


Last year Danish director Tobias Lindholm’s A Hijacking (2012) won the Jury Prize, adding Best Actor for Søren Malling; A Hijacking is also on this year’s programme, with Michael Noer’s Northwest (2013), Nikolaj Arcel’s A Royal Affair (2012) and Thomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt (2012). Lindholm, Noer, Vinterberg, Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive/2011), Per Fly (Waltz for Monica/2013) and actor Mads Mikkelsen are among the attendants.
