Nuuk International Film Festival launched in 2018, the first honor award went to Alanis Obomsawim. In 2019 NIFF launched the first jury award for best short film and best feature length film. These are the awards that will be given away again in 2020.
It is an honor to make a jury award, made by Peter “Kujooq” Kristiansen.
The Jury award represents Nuuk with its urban style, given that the stone was found in Radiofjeldet at the housing buildings in Nuuk, but also represents the solid huge arctic landscape.
Festival Director, Pipaluk K. Jørgensen
