COP SECRET (Iceland) | 24.6.22, 20:45 (OmU) Like “The Naked Gun” in Icelandic! Bússi and Hörður are the coolest supercops in Reykjavik: they are super fast, super strong and above all super manly – at least if you ask them.
Another Round (Denmark) | 3.7.22, 10:30 (OmU) With his three friends, Martin (Mads Mikkelsen) starts an experiment: According to a Norwegian philosopher, people benefit from having 0.5 per mille of alcohol in their blood. Is alcohol a solution after all?

BORDER (Sweden, Denmark) | 19.8.22, 21:45 (OmU) Cinema that blasts everything conventional with ease and turns it on its head. An exciting, intelligent mix of romance, Nordic noir and fantasy.
NINJABABY (Norway) | 1.9.22, 20:15 (Preview, OmU) 23 years old, a student and no real direction in life. Rakel’s life is going a bit wrong. The tip of the iceberg is when she suddenly finds out that she is pregnant.
INTO THE ICE (Denmark) | 26.9.22, 19:00 (Opening Climate and Environmental Film Days, OmU) In one of the wildest and most extreme landscapes on earth, ice explorers risk their lives to understand climate change. Followed by a panel discussion.
