From February 12 through 21, the Bright Nights Film Festival brings eight films — never before seen in Ottawa — from the Baltic and Nordic countries across the Atlantic: Lithuania, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Iceland, and Norway.
 
The far reaches of the festival world — from Berlin and Cannes to Toronto and Montreal — have been gleaned for eclectic, dark, edgy, hilarious, and intriguing perspectives in contemporary Baltic and Nordic film. It may be your only chance to see these incredible stories.
 
This year's event kicks off with a one-of-a-kind Launch Party on February 3rd at Arts Court, when local band Orienteers performs a live soundtrack for a classic Danish silent film. Sample nations' beloved liqueurs and spirits, grab a bite, and enter to win prizes. Tickets go on sale soon: $5 in advance or $8 at the door.
 
The festival itself is held February 12 - 21 at Carleton University's River Building Theatre, featuring high definition A/V and comfy seats. Tickets are $9 each for CFI members, students, and seniors, FREE for Carleton students, and $13 for everyone else.

The whole event is held in partnership with the Embassies of the Baltic and Nordic nations, and Ottawa's Winterlude Festival, with support from Carleton University.
