24 JULI // MIX COPENHAGEN PRESENT NORDIC
LIGHTS SHORT FILM PROGRAM

MIX Copenhagen sýnir Nordic Lights stuttfilmar Hesir stuttfilmar úr skránni hjá árliga Nordic Lights filmstevnuni hjá MIX Copenhagen raka neyvt. Talan er um sjey stuttfilmar framleiddir í Norðurlondum, sum vit meta hava týdning og hava ein serstakan norðurlendskan dám. Kom við inn í myrkrið enn eina ferð og lat norðlýsið taka teg á ferð. MIX COPENHAGEN byrjaði í 1986 og er í dag tann elsti árligi filmsfestivalurin í Danmark umframt ein av heimsins elstu LGBTQ+ filmsfestivalum. Vit eru ein sjálvboðin felagsskapur av eldhugaðum LGBTQ+ filmsáhugaðum fólki, sum brúkar frítíðina til at gera MIX COPENHAGEN til eitt merkisvert tiltak fyri LGBTQ+ umhvørvið, men eisini alt Key- pmannahavn og langt út um býarmarkið. Okkara endamál er at vísa eitt breitt úrval av filmum, ið boyggja kynsfatanir og seksuell mørk, og ávirka kjakið um kyn og varpa ljós á ymiskleika.

The shorts featured in MIX Copenhagen’s recurring Nordic Lights program hit closest to home. ‘’These are seven short films produced in the North, which we think are important and bring a special Nordic shine. Join us in the dark once again and let the northern lights guide you on this journey.’’ MIX COPENHAGEN started in 1986 and is now Denmark’s oldest annual and still active film festival, as well as one of the world’s oldest LGBTQ+ film festivals. We are a voluntary association run by passionate LGBTQ+ film lovers who spend our free time making MIX COPEN- HAGEN a spectacular event not only for the LGBTQ+ environment, but also for the whole of Copenhagen and far beyond the city limits. Our goal is to show a wide range of films that bend gender and break sexual boundaries, influence the gender debate and reflect a diverse world. This year our festival takes place from 22nd to 31st October.
