Unfortunately I could only attend one day of last year's Nordicana Film Festival which was much to my regret as Nordicana had tons of films and TV previews that I was keen on seeing - but it was an absolutely superb day out nonetheless and in-between scoffing on delicious Nordic fair I finally got to see: Thomas Vinterberg's outstanding Mads Mikkelsen starrer The Hunt (Jagten), Daniel Espinosa's Easy Money (Snabba cash) with Joel Kinnaman and Tobias Lindholm's A Hijacking (Kapringen) again.

Nordicana 2014 running over February 1 and 2 has relocated to the functional Old Truman Brewery and is promising even more Nordic fare, film, television and events.
It would be hard to pick some recommendations from this year's schedule but some top choices to consider include:
A special UK preview of Pioneer (directed and part written by Erik Skjoldbjærg the man behind Christopher Nolan's Insomnia) followed a Q&A session with lead actor Aksel Hennie (Headhunters) by Oscar and BAFTA nominated editor of Gravity - Mark Sanger.

And a particular favourite of mine The Bridge 2, Episode 9, as Actor Kim Bodnia is a living Cult Legend you may remember him for his flawless performances in amongst others Nicolas Winding Refn's outstanding early works; Pusher and Bleeder.
