Nordic Lights Film Festival

10th Annual Film Festival

(Mar 01, 2019 - Mar 03, 2019)

The Nordic Lights Film Festival is devoted to showcasing Nordic cinema.

For a decade, we have offered NLFF to Seattle audiences as an avenue to experience Nordic cinema in all its forms. The festival gives us the opportunity to share the richness and diversity of the Nordic cultures through the lens of film.


Thank you to everyone who attended the 2019 film festival! This was our best attended year yet. We can't wait to bring you more great Nordic films in 2020.
