Festival presented by Palace will see some of the most exciting and fresh movies from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland grace Palace Cinema screens around Australia from 5 July.
Location: Palace Cinema Centro & Barracks screens.
When: Wed 13 - Wed 27 July, 2016
Tickets: On sale since 7 June

National Festivals Director Elysia Zeccola Hill who has been running festivals at Palace Cinemas for the last 18 years said: "Scandinavia has produced some of the most iconic films ever made. This festival screens the hottest talent from the most current crop of films. Over the past 10 days in Cannes I have locked in the final films for this edition and they will premiere on the big screen in Australia less than two months later."

To wet your appetite, here is a preview of the 2016 program:

Finland's official Oscar contender, and winner of Best Film at Finland's 2016 Jussi Awards, THE FENCER, offers a fictionalised take on a real-life fencing teacher who took a stand against Stalinist oppression in Soviet-era Estonia. Fleeing from the Russian secret police, a young Estonian fencer is forced to return to his homeland, where he becomes a physical education teacher at a local school. However, the past catches up with him as he comes face to face with a difficult choice.
Meanwhile, more in the spirit of recent Nordic fare, tense suspense thriller ABSOLUTION starring the brilliant Laura Birn (2014 Festival guest) tackles the moral questions of guilt and revenge after a hit-and-run accident spirals out of control. Mari Rantasila (2015 Festival film Armi Alive!), took the Best Supporting Actress award for her performance in this film at Finland's recent Jussi Awards
Also from Finland, OTHER GIRLS (Toiset Tytöt) is a survival story about those moments when life gives you a brutal kick, but you decide to kick back. HARD! Based on true events, it follows 18- year-old girls Jessica, Jenny, Taru and Aino who are on the verge of adulthood as they lose their innocence and, at times, their faith.

Concert TRACE BUNDY - Sunday 13 August 2016 from 7.00 pm

Concert by Trace Bundy
Internationally-acclaimed guitar virtuoso Trace Bundy must be seen, not just heard. His music is poetry in motion, using harmonics, looping, multiple capos, and his unique banter and stage presence to deliver an unforgettable live concert experience. Listening to his intricate arrangements is one thing, but seeing the fan- dubbed "Acoustic Ninja" play live confounds even the most accomplished music lovers as to how one person can do all that with just two hands and ten fingers.
Over his many years of touring, Trace has shared the stage with Olivia Newton- John, Judy Collins, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, David Knopfler (Dire Straits), Bill Nershi (String Cheese), Laurence Juber (Paul McCartney n Wings), and Chris Hillman (the Byrds), among others.

Audiocast Magazine from Austin, TX agrees: "Bundy's live show is without a doubt an event that needs to be witnessed rather than told about. With such a jaw-dropping performance, Bundy's live concert is a slap in the face that would leave a palm print on the memory of everyone in the audience."
Tickets via www.songkick.com $38 or at the door. Doors open at 7 pm.
