Baltic Sea Competition

In 2018 Carl International Film Festival presented a competition programme for feature films from the Baltic Sea region – Baltic Sea Competition. Olga Chajdas received the award for Best Director with her film Nina (Poland), which had its Nordic premiere during the festival. The special award for Best Screenwriter went to Isabella Eklöf, Ali Abbasi and John Ajvide Lindqvist for Border (Sweden).
Setting out to showcase the best films from the talents of the region, Baltic Sea Competition will recognize directing and screenwriting achievements among the competing films. The programme is open to both feature fiction and feature documentaries with a strong narrative and cinematic language that in some way corresponds with the festival’s values of openness and freedom.
