Mission / description SPOT Festival started in 1994 as a music festival with the main purpose being to showcase up-and-coming Nordic talent. It has since grown and is today known as one of Scandinavia’s most important showcase music festivals, celebrated annually in the heart of Aarhus city.

In 2013, SPOT Festival decided to expand and began to include a Film & Interactive element to the festival. The core of the festival remains the same: to create a platform for up-and-coming Nordic talents on the verge of a national and international breakthrough.

SPOT Film aspires to showcase and promote emerging Nordic film talents across all genres, as well as offer seminars, workshops and networking events that all aim to aid young filmmakers on their path to success.

SPOT Film also strives to focus on films that combine and merge the world of music and films and have therefore dedicated two programmes that showcase such films.

SPOT Film has two competition programmes:
SPOT The Film – short fiction films by Nordic film talents
SPOT The Documentary – documentary films by Nordic talents
Nordic countries include: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Greenland, Faroe Islands, Åland Islands and Svalbard

In addition, SPOT Film has two other main programmes (not competition):
SPOT The Music – music films (both fiction and documentary) from all over the world
SPOT The Video – music videos from all over the world

SPOT Film furthermore offers additional film programmes, pitching sessions, seminars, and Q&As with filmmakers.
