Fri os fra det onde (Ole Bornedal, DK/SE, 2009)

In search of a new lifestyle, Johannes and his wife Pernille leave the city and move with their two children to Johannes' childhood town in the country. When Johannes' drunken brother Lars accidently runs over Anna, a local, and plants false evidence pointing at the emigrant Alain, Johannes stands up to defend Alain. But it comes with a price. The town soon reveals its ugly face, as revenge, hatred and xenophobia become the order of the day, turning the life of Johannes and his family into a living nightmare.

Registration of festival participation and awards

The Danish Film Institute registers international festival participation and awards for Danish films, though primarily for films whose festival distribution is handled by the Danish Film Institute, and primarily in connection with festivals prioritised by the Danish Film Institute. Festival participation and awards regarding Danish films that are not handled through the Danish Film Institute's festival distribution will only be registered in connection with "launch" festivals, according to the Danish Film Institute's list of priority festivals. See the list of priority festivals.
