Seattle is known for having a rich, artistic history. While this is mostly founded in modern music, the city has attracted a number of filmmakers and appreciators, resulting in a plethora of film festivals. One such event is gearing up next month, produced in conjunction with the Seattle International Film Festival and the Nordic Heritage Museum, the Nordic Lights Film Festival (NLFF) will run from January 18 to 20 at the Seattle Center, according to My Ballard, a local blog.
“This cutting-edge cinematic event offers an immersion into the world of Nordic films,” states the Nordic Heritage Museum’s event page. “Focusing on contemporary, award-winning feature-length films, documentaries and short films from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.”
Set to play at the NLFF are titles such as “Volcano,” “Silence,” “The Finland Phenomenon,” “Turn me on, Dammit!” and “Teddy Bear.”
In order for organizers to receive a solid return on investment, they need to offer a unique consumer experience that is unavailable anywhere else. While feature films from these the Nordic region may not be widely screened in the United States outside of arthouse cinemas and university lecture halls, the planners of the NLFF can create an even more unique experience by using outdoor movie screens.
By investing in this product, festival producers will be able to set themselves apart from the competition, not only screening excellent films on a high-quality system but also by providing the ambiance and scenery to make a one-of-a-kind show.
