FESTIVAL. Denmark is strongly represented at the Children and Young People's Film Festival BUFF in Malmö.

Ten Danish films participate at this year's BUFF (15-19 March). They are featured in several categories:

Two films are nominated in Best Film For Children: "Lost in Africa" by Vibeke Musaya and "The Great Bear" by Esben Toft Jacobsen. "Wimp" by Camilla Ramonn competes for Best Short.

New Nordic Film

This series showcases new youth features made in Scandinavia. Kasper Munck's "Hold Me Tight" and Rune Schjøtt's "Skyscraper" represent Denmark. Both were featured in the official programme at the Berlin Film Festival. "Skyscraper" is also at the center of attention in an interactive seminar arranged by BUFF.
