Nordic Talents is a networking event with the aim of introducing newly graduated Nordic students within film- and TV to established Nordic producers and financiers. Nordic Film & TV Fund has selects fifteen projects for its 19th Nordic Talents pitch competition, to be held September 4-5 at the National Film School of Denmark. Also, twelve Nordic producers will introduce themselves and their companies at the Producer's Pitch. 

Grímar Jónsson, producer of Grímur Hákonarson's feature film The County and managing director of Netop Films, is among this year's jury. The Jury selects the winners and hands out two prizes, The Nordic Talents Pitch prize and The Nordic Talents Special Mention. 

One of the fifteen selected projects for the pitch competition is Katrín Björgvinsdóttir's graduation film Queen Ingrid.

When her best friend moves out to start a family, Ingrid feels all alone and decides she wants to find love before it's too late.

The two time Nordic Council Film Prize winner, writer/director/actor Benedikt Erlingsson (Woman at War, Of Horses and Men) will hold a Master Class before the Award Ceremony closes the event.
