“With a local opener, Magnus Martens’ ‘United,’ and a domestic flagship in the children’s film fest — Hilde Heier’s ‘Little Miss Norway’ — the selection reflects the strong position of Norwegian cinema,” said program director Hakon Skogrand.

New Nordic Films, the Scandinavian product mart that attracted 40 international buyers to Norway’s largest film event last year, unspools Aug. 23-25.
