New Delhi, Nov 7 : The Nordic-Baltic embassies are all set to host the first ever youth film festival of the European nations in Delhi showcasing movies from the region.
The November 13-18 festival in collaboration with the India Habitat Centre will be held from 6.30 p.m. every evening.
The Nordic-Baltic countries -- Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden, or NB8 -- are tied together geographically and historically through trade, culture and many common yet diverse value systems, according to a joint statement from their embassies in Delhi.
The statement said the embassies through this film festival were carrying "the bond further and reaching out to the culturally rich Delhi audiences".
"This platform offers a great opportunity for Nordic-Baltic countries to reflect on the similarities and appreciate their differences. It will also prove to be a platform to enhance people-to-people relations and share the thrill, excitement and experience of watching films together."
The festival will offer a diverse mix of some of the most celebrated and Oscar nominated movies from the Nordic-Baltic region. From action movies to family films to documentaries, the collection offers something for everyone's taste, the statement said.
