Chinese moviegoers will have an
opportunity to see the cream of new Nordic cinema at the Shanghai
International Film Festival, which will take place from 5-13 June. A
delegation from each of the Nordic countries will take part in one of the

institute's umbrella organization, Scandinavian Films, will have their own
promotion booth at the Shanghai Film and TV Market.

The Danish delegation - Henning Camre,
CEO of the Danish Film Institute (DFI), Lizette Gram, DFI Festival
Manager, Kim Magnusson, head of film production at Nordisk Film; and the
directors Jesper W. and Nils Malmros - will be present at a number of
events including the press conference opening Nordic Focus on 6 June, and
a specialized seminar on contemporary Scandinavian cinema.

Three Danish feature films will be
screened for the festival participants: Jesper W. and Angel Films' "Okay",
Nils Malmros and Nordisk Film's "Facing the Truth" and Lone Scherfig and
Zentropa's "Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself".
