Today, Göteborg International Film Festival is the leading film festival in Scandinavia. The aim of the festival is two-fold. Firstly, and most importantly, it's a yearly opportunity to offer interested viewers a broad program of films that not always reach the cinemas. Secondly, it's a meeting place for the Nordic film industry.
To that end, in 2000, the festival established a market place for Nordic film. The ambition was to strengthen the role of the festival as a Nordic meeting place and to be the interational link to new Nordic films. During four days, new films are screened for an international group of buyers, distributors and festival representatives. The market place, which runs parallel to the ordinary festival, is called Nordic Film Market and hosts 180 specially invited guests each year. It is today the biggest single market place for Nordic films.
The festival opens and closes with a party. At the opening party, the Swedish Minister of Culture makes the opening speech. During the closing party, the award ceremony for the Nordic Competition takes place, where the winner recieves the Filmdraken prize and 100 000 Skr.
