Greenland’s first feature film came out in 2009, and since then Greenland has produced roughly one feature film per year. In a nation with only 56,000 inhabitants, increased filmmaking activities have called for an organization like FILM.GL to build proper frameworks for film production in Greenland.
Founded in 2012, FILM.GL aims to professionalize the local film industry, create better financing conditions for Greenlandic filmmakers, and raise international awareness on Greenland as a film producing nation. In 2016 FILM.GL teamed up with Visit Greenland to build this website, and both entities also have strong relationships with the national air carrier Air Greenland as well as the hospitality sector in the country.
FILM.GL is not only promoting film content from Greenland, but also setting up joint talent schemes within the North Atlantic region, marketing Greenland as a location for filming, as well as inviting film professionals to share with us their experiences of setting up film industries in small communities.
Join us, and meet the hottest filmmakers from the coolest country. Welcome to Greenland!
