About the Festival
Northern Lights Nordic-Baltic Film Festival in Belarus is an annual event that offers the most recent and inspiring films from Northern Europe and Baltic States. The festival is organized and supported by the Office of Nordic Council of Ministries in Lithuania since 2015. In the language of the cinema, the films of the festival tell about life peculiarities of five member states of Nordic Council of Ministers, as well as three Baltic States. Altogether, the festival presents films from Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Faroe Islands and Greenland.

Moreover, Northern Lights Film Festival provides an outstanding industry platform for communication between film professionals and enthusiasts in Belarus. Having the main program in April, the festival also organizes workshops for Belarusian professionals and screens more films, both fictions and docs, in additional programs throughout the year.

In 2020, the festival is going through a difficult period of transformation and struggle with reality. Initially, the 6th edition of the festival was moved online due to the situation with COVID-19, later even the online format was moved due to the Internet blockade in Belarus in August 2020. Despite the difficult conditions, we decided to hold the 6th film festival in online format, go through this experience, become even stronger and hopefully help to maintain a cheerful spirit with our program. Zzya!
