Nordisk Panorama Film Festival is the main yearly event of the non-profit organisation Filmkontakt Nord based in Copenhagen, Denmark. As the event itself takes place in Malmö we also have offices there.

The organisation is run by public funding in the Nordic countries and Creative Europe and the main event Nordisk Panorama Film Festival is organised in co-operation with the City of Malmö, Film i Skåne and Region Skåne.

As our organisation is mainly associated with our main event we have adopted to call the entire organisation Nordisk Panorama (hereon referred to as ‘NP’).
