This years’ jury:
Nancy Bladfält worked as a film critic at Västerbottens Kuriren for 13 years, before she changed her career to an interior decorator. Watching movies is something she still hasn’t let go of and she is a frequent visitor at most cultural events, both in private and as a freelance journalist.
Elenor Nordström works as a coordinator for the international literature festival Littfest, and as a theatre consultant in Västerbotten. She likes stories that stay in the mind for a long time after the experience, and she doesn’t mind it being a bit quirky and dark.
Bengt Strömbro works as a program manager at SVT in Umeå and is one of the initiators of humour group Mammas Nya Kille. Bengt was active as a short film director in the early 2000s, and is among other films the director behind “Fanny & Ronny” and “Fröken Söndag”.
