Linn Henriksen, producer, Sweden/Sápmi, Oskar Östergren Njajta, producer, Norway/Sápmi and Marc Fussing Rosbach, Greenland/Sápmi presented Arctic Indigenous filmmakers and their work.
The main outcomes for filmmakers and their careers are to get direct contact with the worldfilm business. They met and pitched their films and ideas during these events to the film funders, distributors, and sales agencies, which can lead to direct sales now or in the future. Having an opportunity to be part of bigger Arctic Indigenous film delegation, one filmmaker will get more attention and visibility for his/her films.
One of the outcomes was also to give our filmmakers the key to the professional film markets like Cannes Marché du Film to give them more confidence and experience in the future. Attending the events gives also the filmmakers good credit for their CVs and it will higher their credibility in the global film business.
