Nordic Film Lab Discovery

Nordic Film Lab Discovery was created to offer a unique opportunity for participants of Nordic Film Lab to present their projects and receive direct feedback from financiers, sales agents, buyers, festival programmers and potential co-producers. The programme also serves as a window towards the international and Nordic film industry so that they can discover and get in touch with new talents and their projects.

The 2017 Nordic Film Lab Discovery Projects

In 2016 Göteborg Film Festival will develop NFL Discovery into a co-funding platform for projects in an early development stage. This is to better respond to the needs of different projects, as well as clarifying the concept of the arrangement towards industry and market participants. Projects that are in the final stage of production will from now on instead be a part of Nordic Film Markets annual Work In Progress-program, presented as Discovery projects. The participants of NFL Discovery will present their projects along with their respective director/producer/screenwriter to the gathered attending Industry representatives. 

NFL Discovery launched in 2013 and is a well-developed collaboration between Nordic Film Lab and Göteborg Film Festival’s marketplace Nordic Film Market. The event takes place during the festival one year after the participants' first meeting, which marks the end of the lab. Until now, NFL Discovery has featured 26 upcoming Nordic film productions, including seven Danish, ten Norwegian and nine Swedish. NFL Discovery is open to different genres and formats such as feature films, documentaries, TV series and animation.
