The Nordic Council Film Prize is an annual film prize administered by the Nordic Council. The first award was handed out in 2002 to celebrate the Nordic Council's 50th anniversary.[1] Since 2005 the prize has been annual. One winner is chosen from submissions from the five Nordic countries. In 2008, the prize money of the Nordic Council Film Prize was 47,000. According to the Nordic Council, the prize is given for "the creation of an artistically original film that is rooted in Nordic cultural circles".[2]
