If Japanese cinema isn’t your thing (see Cult Japan at Cinemateque), then maybe Scandinavian cinema is more to your liking. Next month, the Scandinavian Film Festival will be held at Palace Centro cinemas, with films from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden to feature on the program, which kicks off on Thursday, July 16 with opening night film Here is Harold.


The festival runs until July 26 with more than 20 films from which to choose including Young Sophie Bell, the winner of Best Film at the Stockholm Film Festival, and Homesick, which featured at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The closing night film is Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words, a documentary that celebrates the life and career of Ingrid Bergman, Sweden’s most beloved and celebrated actress.
