Call for projects: Nordic Genre Boost 2017

Writers, directors and producers from the Nordic countries, developing a genre film project, are invited to apply to the third and final edition of Nordic Genre Boost - the development support program for Nordic genre film projects that includes a grant of NOK 200.000 and access to two development workshops. Deadline for applying is December 12th. 2016.


Final Return of the Nordic Genre Boost

Following the first two successful rounds of the Nordic Genre Boost programme, Nordisk Film & TV Fund has decided to launch a 3rd and final round of its development initiative that puts a specific focus on the continuously expanding Nordic and international field of genre films. 

A growing number of filmmakers are developing genre film and TV-projects that cross borders within the Nordic countries and beyond; it has therefore proven timely to bring these stories further into the spotlight. Nordic Genre Boost combines a development grant of NOK 200,000 for every selected project and access to an intensive process of two workshops.  

Genre projects are defined as including horror, sci-fi, comedy (straight and in combination with other genres) and other established genres such as, but not limited to, fantasy, supernatural, western, mystery and more. Crime and thriller genres are expected to go beyond the ordinary, well-known formats.
