Film Fests!

For those who simply love subtitles and the flavor of language, there are  lots of  ‘local’ opportunities  this month to take in a wonderful selection of Scandinavian  films!

Here on Whidbey Island our Nordic Lodge is partnering with the Oak Harbor Public Library and offering a showing of 3 Scandinavian films on Saturday, January 22nd, in Oak Harbor – Troubled Water, Fjols til Fjells, and Mother of Mine.

In Seattle beginning Friday, January 7th, at the 3 day long Nordic Lights Film Festival (a  partnership between the Nordic Heritage Museum and  the Seattle International Film Festival) there will be a showing of  some 25 or so contemporary, award-winning feature-length and short films from Scandinavia – including Troubled Water.

Last, though not part of a  film festival, the Clyde Theater in Langley (here on Whidbey) is showing a Swedish film (with English subtitles)  – The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest January 14-17.   The Clyde is also offering a free showing of  Millennium: The Story, a documentary about Stieg Larsson, the author of the book on which this film is based  and the last of a trilogy of books and films.

Whidbey’s Scandinavian Film Fest is free and open to the public.
