‘Camera’ snaps up Nordic Film Prize

Fabik's 'Ketchup Effect' wins Canal Plus Award

Swedish director Carl Johan de Geer won the Nordic Film Prize of $27,000 for his autobiographical drama-documentary “Hidden Behind the Camera, Part 2” at Sweden’s 27th Goteborg Film Festival, which ended Monday.

Part 1 of his oeuvre is a book with photos. Eight Nordic features were nominated for the award.

By Sunday, the festival had registered 107,000 admissions, down from 112,000 in 2003, which was a record year, and hard to live up to, according to Asa Larsson, head of information for the fest.

Some 5,000 participated in the Cinemix seminars, and another 18,000 in special programs.

The jury, headed by Swedish critic Monika Tunback-Hanson, gave the Kodak Nordic Vision Prize for Cinematography to Leif Benjour for Swedish director Tomas Alfredson’s “Four Shades of Brown,” which also bagged the festival’s ecumenical kudos.

Swedish director Teresa Fabik’s “The Ketchup Effect” received the Canal Plus Award.

The Fipresci jury of international film critics favored Finnish director J.P. Siila’s “Young Gods.”

Swedish director Niklas Radstrom cashed in on the new $62,000 Bratek short film prize for “The Eiffel Tour” and Swedish director Jens Jonsson’s novella film “Fragile” won $20,000 from the Swedish Film Institute.
