Greenland Eyes International Film Festival

Greenland Eyes is a film festival with Greenlandic focus. It takes place in nine different locations in the Nordic countries as well as in Germany and the USA. The result is a fantastic piece of cultural and awareness-raising work, promoting tourism in Greenland. Text: Mads Nordlund, Photo: Greenland Eyes

Greenland Eyes film festival shows films from and about Greenland. After the showings there were panels with the directors and actors, giving the public a unique opportunity to clarify any questions about Greenland.

The Innovator Behind Greenland Eyes is Ivalo Frank, a filmmaker who lives in Berlin. - Greenland is special to me, because I was born there. I have a strong sense of belonging to the country, to its na-
