Riders (Jesper Vidkjær Rasmussen, DK, 2015)

35-year-old Lars is a leading (outlaw) biker who, after several years in prison, has become a Christian. He has not become missionary or sacred, but his view of life has changed, and his newfound faith is something he hides from the inmates. It's a secret that only he and the prison guard, Eline, knows of. When Lars gets released, after eight years, he is determined to leave his biker club. But his decision implies serious consequences, not only for Lars, but also for his wife and son. Lars' old biker-friend, Lennart, is the boss in the biker club in the absence of Lars, and Lennart won't let go of Lars. Eventually Lars has to risk his own life, to save his family.

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.
