The Scandinavian Film Festival is organized by students of the University of Bonn, who have set themselves the task of bringing current Scandinavian and Finnish films to the city’s cinema screens – each film in its original language, subtitled in German or English. The week-long festival is held annually in April or May.
The festival was founded by students of Scandinavian Studies in 1999 and took place every year since then. Today, the organizational group consists of volunteer students from various disciplines. The festival is a non-profit organization entirely funded by sponsorships and through the support of the Nordic embassies.
