New Nordic Voices Award


  69 by Nikolaj Viborg, Denmark

Jury motivation: "The New Nordic Voices Award goes to a brave film that reminds us once again how important documentary filmmaking is. When it comes to taking on challenging subjects in a more and more conform world this is a voice we need. In a violent context the film treats the subject with great gentleness and respect, with an all present camera. A film portraying youth fighting for their own place in society and the right to be diverse, facing police brutality and political ignorance." 


Honorary Mention
