29 Sep – 5 Oct. FREE ADMISSION.
As we enter into Spring, up north in the Nordic Countries, a dark time is coming. After last year’s success, The Bioscope is proud to host another joint Nordic Film Festival with the Embassies of Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway. This time, we wanted to explore the dark – the Nordic Noir – but also the off-beat humour and unique creative output that comes as a result of enduring such extreme weather conditions. From suspense thrillers to Nazi Zombies, from award-winning television series and dark crime thrillers, to space Nazis attacking earth from the dark side of the moon. And the best part is that it is all for FREE. To secure your seat, all you have to do is buy a drinks voucher for R25 that will be redeemed at the cinema when you arrive!
